Is it possible to close gap in front teeth without braces?

Doctor's Answers (1)

There are some cases where patients have had to wear braces more than once. If done correctly, it really doesn’t pose much harm to your teeth. The treatment options really depend on how big the gap is. Your options are:

  1. If gap is small, a removable retainer to close the gap first then a fixed retainer after
  2. If gap is bigger, you may need fixed braces or Invisalign
  3. You may have also fillings or veneers to close the gap but you will need aesthetic advice as this may make your teeth look ‘bigger’ than normal.

Once the gaps have closed, it is very important to wear your retainers and to ensure that the retainers are reviewed and adjusted regularly.

Good luck!
