Ways to Fix a Front Tooth Gap Carrollton, GA
Porcelain Veneers Carrollton GA

While a few celebrities have embraced their front tooth gap with pride, most people are less confident about this wide space that intrudes their smile. Whether it is small or large, a gap (called diastema) between the upper front teeth can be a real threat to your overall smile appearance. This leads many patients to see correction from a dentist. You may be surprised to learn that there is more than one way to fix a front tooth gap, and it may be easier than you think!

The Reason for Your Gap

There are several factors that can cause gaps between your teeth, including those that happen over time as well as those that were present at birth. Here are some top reasons for your unsightly front tooth gap:

  • Imbalance between the size of your jaw and the size of your teeth
  • Teeth are undersized
  • Missing teeth
  • Oversized labial frenum (tissue that hangs between your front top two teeth)
  • Thumbsucking or other bad habits
  • Misalignment or malocclusion

It is important to determine the cause of your front tooth gap before you seek correction. Gaps in your smile can be more than just a cosmetic issue. Misalignment or periodontal issues need to be addressed so that worsening problems do not occur. Knowing the culprit of your gap can also determine the best course of treatment.

Closing in the Gap

When it comes to treating gaps between your teeth, you have options. The best solution is based on the condition of your smile, your teeth alignment, the size of your gaps and your overall goals. Treatment options include:


Clear orthodontic systems like Invisalign are available to move your front teeth together and close the gap. This is ideal if you have other minor orthodontic issues.


Bonding with tooth-colored composite resin is excellent for those who don’t have alignment issues and who have very small gaps between their teeth. Bonding is quick, painless and affordable.

Porcelain Veneers

If your gaps are too wide for dental bonding, and you are not able or willing to undergo orthodontics, then you may consider porcelain veneers. Veneers are permanent shells of porcelain that cover the front teeth and mimic perfectly beautiful teeth.


Dental crowns are best for large gaps that are accompanied by severely damaged teeth. Crowns can restore teeth that are severely eroded, chipped or discolored, but they can also change their shape to fill in smile gaps.

This was absolutely the best experience I have ever had with any dentist. Dr. Tejal is so attentive to the needs of her patients. She cares deeply about the quality of service provided and taking care of you individually. You don't feel like a number. You leave knowing that you received the best care and beautiful smile to go with it.

I have never had a bad experience going to see Dr. Kakade and her amazing, caring staff. They make it super easy to book an appointment, send you helpful reminders via text, and you are in and out in a short amount of time with hardly any wait time. The office is warm and inviting with nice decor and even dentist chairs that massage you! Best of all, the entire staff genuinely care about their patients and want to help them have the best experience possible. They remember you and get to know you. I actually look forward to going!

Dr. Tejal and her wonderful staff do everything humanly possible to make every patient feel welcomed, supported, and cared for with the utmost compassion and professionalism. It feels as though one has been adopted into a family of caretakers and that you are a part of the family. 5 Stars and thumbs up all the way! They are the best! I speak from personal experience.


My family has used Dr. Tejal since she started her practice in Carrollton. She is thorough, detailed, and comprehensive in her approach to dental care. She seems to invest in new technology and modern methods to make routine and extraordinary care as easy for the patient as possible. Candy has been my hygienist for over a decade and does a fantastic job restoring my teeth to tip-top shape. On the rare occasion when Candy was unavailable, the other members of Dr. Tejal's team have been excellent.

Jordan D.

Calm and peaceful office.

Prentice M.

Wonderful office staff, nice environment. Dr. Tejal and staff do a great job of making one feel comfortable and the dental work after local anesthesia want uncomfortable. Few people like going to the dentist, but my experience here has been excellent.
