How Best to Treat Crooked Teeth Gaps
Sometimes the gaps between your teeth might be caused by crooked teeth. Often the crooked teeth are tilted sideways, creating spaces between them and their neighboring teeth. Other times, the teeth tilt backward. Even if this doesn’t create a literal gap between your teeth, it can create a dark space that looks like a gap.
Dealing with this type of tooth gap sometimes requires orthodontics. Other times, Rancho Mirage cosmetic dentist Dr. Strober recommends what we often call “instant orthodontics.” In this procedure, we use a combination of porcelain veneers and/or dental crowns to reshape your teeth. This makes them look straight but doesn’t require moving the tooth roots.
Instead of taking about a year to straighten your teeth, instant orthodontics can give you results in under a month. Plus, they can brighten, repair, and reshape your teeth at the same time.
