Porcelain veneers are usually good options to fill in minor gaps less than
2mm wide between front teeth. But if there is still a 2mm gap between the
front teeth after two years of braces, porcelain veneers may not be an
option for you. A cosmetic evaluation will need to be performed first, and
during the process the space and sizes of all front teeth should be
measured. Please let me know if you have other questions.

the two front teeth. This will also give you a great look with positive

1. Clear Aligner Therapy using Invisalign- a series of clear plastic trays that gently move teeth to the desired position.
2. Porcelain Veneers- thin porcelain shells that are bonded to the front of one's teeth to reshape, change the shade, or close spaces.
3. Composite bonding-this is a cheaper and temporary solution similar to porcelain veneers but does not look as good. The composite filling material is bonded to one's teeth but is not as smooth as porcelain and therefore tends to stain, discolor, and chip more readily over time.
I would recommend an evaluation by a cosmetic dentist with a photo simulation to see which option is best for you.

First thing is the relationship between the upper front teeth and the lower front teeth. There are times
that the best treatment is to orthodontically close the space. There are times that closing the space by placing
crowns on the teeth is the best choice. The things to consider are: how wide will be the two front teeth if all the space
is closed by simply making them wider, should you consider crowing all 4 front teeth to share the width so that the front
teeth don't appear so wide. In my office we do all aspects of dentistry. We do orthodontics and we do crown and bridge, as well
as every other area, so we are able to completely evaluate the options and help you decide. I wish I could just say one
way was better than the other, but I do not have enough information to know that for sure.
