How We Fix Smiles with Gaps
Gaps between teeth may not only affect the beauty of your smile and your self-confidence; gaps can lead to serious dental problems. When teeth are too widely spaced out from each other, your tooth and gum health can be affected, also. Gaps between teeth allow food particles to enter, allowing bacteria to grow; untreated bacterial growth leads to plaque and tartar. When left untreated, this can lead to serious dental problems, including tooth decay, gingivitis, and periodontitis (more advanced gum disease).
Most people are fine with small gaps between a couple of teeth, and many people even find small gaps between teeth attractive. However, when those gaps are too large and detract from the aesthetics of your smile, it’s time to look into cosmetic dentistry solutions to fix those gaps.
Dr. Reeves and his team will discuss ways to fill the gaps between your teeth; you may need some combination of cosmetic dentistry and orthodontia. We have different types of teeth straightening systems at our Savannah, GA, practice, and we look forward to meeting you and discussing ways we can transform your gappy smile into the stunning one you’ve always wanted.
No two patient smile makeovers are ever identical because every patient presents with different problems and goals; therefore, we won’t know your treatment plan until we perform a thorough exam and evaluation of your current smile and oral health.
