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

Braces & Invisalign Dental

Hi there,

I have worn braces for 1.5 years and removed it in year 2012. I am born with a tooth lesser as compared to others (8 on upper left, 7 on upper right) and the main purpose of putting braces is to close the gap in between my two upper front tooth. However, my retainers was damaged and I did not replace it. Hence, the the gap had resurfaced, and I am finding a way to close it up without the need to wear braces again as it is expensive & I guess no one will wear braces more than once in their lifetime right? Thank you.

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (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!
