A diastema is a natural space or gap between two teeth and is typically more common in children. Gaps generally correct themselves as a child develops and cause no future problems. However, there are some instances where a diastema needs to be corrected by a professional because it did not resolve itself. Since there are no harmful qualities of a diastema, treatment is based on personal preference and the way you view the gap in your teeth.

If you feel self-conscious about the gap between your teeth and want it resolved, our dentist may suggest one of the following treatments:

Our dentist may choose to close the gap between your teeth in a more aesthetically pleasing way. With modern technology, we are able to apply composite resin and adhesive bonding on your affected teeth to make them proportionally correct and symmetrical. Polishing the end result gives your teeth a beautiful surface that imitates the characteristics of your natural teeth.
