Fix Gaps between Teeth with Corrective Treatments

Small teeth, unusual spacing, and/or missing teeth can all cause gaps between teeth. Fixing these gaps – especially between your front teeth – can improve your looks, optimize your bite, and make it easier to keep your teeth and gums clean.

Consider Invisalign® to Fix Gaps between Teeth

It’s important to consult with your Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist to find the best treatment to fix gaps between teeth. However, depending on your individual situation, straightening your teeth might be an option. Invisalign® is a very effective way to reposition teeth that are crooked and out of alignment.

Although some may think that the purpose of Invisalign® is to provide you with a more attractive smile – an obvious benefit – your Century City cosmetic dentist will tell you that the benefit of straightening teeth is to make them easier to clean. Overcrowding and gaps can leave your teeth and gums susceptible to tooth decay, gum disease, abnormal wear, inefficient chewing, as well as cause unnecessary stress on your jawbone.

The reason your Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist suggests Invisalign® over conventional braces is the added benefits they provide. In addition to fixing gaps between your teeth, overcrowding, and your bite, Invisalign® also:

  • Allows you to eat whatever you want
  • Allows you to remove the device easily
  • Straightens teeth invisibly
  • Makes it easier to brush and floss for better oral hygiene
  • Is generally more comfortable than conventional braces
  • Means no dental visits every four to six weeks

Regular braces can cause pain, discomfort, mouth sores, tooth decay, plaque buildup, tooth discoloration and more. They also hinder your ability to eat certain foods, such as popcorn, pretzels, and even hard fruits and vegetables such as apples and carrots.

Fix Gaps between Teeth with Veneers

If Invisalign® isn’t the right option for you, your Century City cosmetic dentist may suggest veneers. Fixing the gaps between teeth with such restorative treatments will depend on the size, location, and cause of the gap as well as the condition of the adjacent teeth.
It’s equally important to keep in mind that there is prep work required if you choose veneers. Your Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist must remove the surface enamel of each tooth involved. This is an irreversible procedure.

There are benefits to having veneers over another procedure, such as bonding. Dental bonding involves applying and sculpting composite material to your teeth. It is less durable. Therefore, it is more susceptible to discoloration and breakage.

A ceramist makes each porcelain veneer to your specific needs. Your Century City cosmetic dentist then attaches them to each tooth, like a press-on nail.

Whatever procedure you choose to fix gaps between teeth, make sure to consult with your Beverly Hills cosmetic dentist.

Is Malocclusion Causing Your Headache?

Let Your Beverly Hills Detist Help You Find Headache Relief Are you a Beverly Hills adult who suffers from chronic headaches? Have you tried Imitrex, diet adjustments, and Century City chiropractic treatment? Perhaps the cause is not stress-induced tension, spine alignment or eyestrain. Maybe the culprit is right under your nose.

Bite misalignment or malocclusion is a common problem in Los Angeles that often goes undetected. Nature intended the front teeth to sit slightly farther forward than the lower teeth. With a perfect bite, the molars fit together like precision gears.

Malocclusion can cause headaches, loosening of teeth, tooth fracture, and, in extreme cases, difficulty chewing, speaking or breathing.

Orthodontic treatment is an effective solution for most bite problems. Braces not only move teeth, but can also correct the position and function of the joints, muscles, and bones in the jaw. In cases of extreme malocclusion, jaw surgery may be necessary.

Not all Hollywood and Century City family dentists treat bite problems. At Century City Aesthetic Dentistry we treat all types of malocclusion including overbite, underbite, and crossbite. For an affordable Los Angeles dentistry consultation, call us at 877-703-7062.
