Diastema closure

What does a gap in the front teeth mean?

A diastema is a space or gap between two teeth. Many species of mammals have diastemata as a normal feature, If the labial frenulum (lip tissue) pulls, it can also push the teeth apart and cause a diastema between the center of the two front teeth.

How is diastema treated?

Options may include:
1. Orthodontic treatment / Invisalign to move the teeth and close the diastema.
2. Use porcelain veneers / lumineers , very thin pieces of porcelain bonded to the outside of the teeth.
3. Use direct composite resin filling
4. Crown and bridge work or replacement of teeth (adults only).
