How large is the gap? A minor space can be improved with cosmetic dental bonding, which is a simple, affordable and quick procedure that builds up the sides of the adjacent teeth with composite resin.
Is the gap too large for bonding? Larger tooth gaps may need porcelain veneers, which are wafer-thin shells of porcelain that will be bonded to the front surfaces of your top two teeth to cover up the gap permanently.
