Selecting A Treatment To Address Your Smile Gap

A gap in a person’s smile is often a consequence of poor dental alignment. However, it is possible for a gap to be present due to the size of a tooth, as space can result when two teeth are simply not meeting each other as closely as they should. At our Sheridan, WY dental office, we can work with you to determine how to improve your smile if you have a gap that bothers you. Cosmetic dentistry provides multiple approaches that we can take – our goal is to select the one that best serves your desires. If you have alignment concerns, we can arrange treatment with Invisalign. If the problem has to do with the size of a tooth, another option can be recommended! (more…)
