What would you like to do?
I am going to try teeth band effect but I just left my dentist yesterday and she informed me my only way to close my gap is through an orthodontist to get braces or invisalign. I had braces because my gap was really big and the little skin in the middle is a muscle. In order to permanently close your gap is to remove that muscle by having a minor surgery, a frenectomy (I paid about $600). i then got braces but never wore my retainer after and it open up, NOT AS BIG THOUGH but now i plan on using the rubber bands to close it then go to the orthodontist to get a small wire behind my two front teeth to keep it in place. I also had that done but it came off and i failed to get it redone. I have heard a lot of negative feedback about the rubber bands. In your case it would definitely not be a permanent solution, you would need the surgery and the braces. Insurance can possibly cover a portion of the surgery and the braces you can pay monthly, that's what I did, i was 16 paying for my braces at about $109 a month for two years, that's how bad I wanted to close my gap and I know how insecure it can make you feel. You probably feel like you are never going to get it done but little by littel, start withthe consulation of the braces and get the braces first, you could then look into the surgery becasue they can do it with your braces on, I did it like that...Put your mind to it and do it, the outcome is a relief. GOOD LUCK!

Yes, teeth effect bands are safe. Infact, I used them myself and my teeth are very healthy. My orthodontist told me if the band slides up on the gum it can damage that area. H…owever, It isn't likely to happen. You would experience a lot of intolerable pain before it would damage that area. Mike It might work temporarily, with some risk of damaging your gums. But you would need some kind of a retainer to make your teeth stay in that position after you have removed the bands. I would recommend to see a professional instead (dentist or orthodontist). My son had 2 tooth bands go up under his gums and needed an operation to remove them , very painful and 4 years later still having major gum probelms, fear he may lose his front teeth, how can these be safe? He used to break them whilst eating so did not realise why his gums/teeth were so sore, it was at least 6 weeks before he saw a dentist/hygenist and then back to orthodontist before being sent for his operation as they thought it was just a probelm with his gums! We now intend to make a complaint as they have damaged his teeth and gums , THESE ARE NOT SAFE, and we were given them by an orthodontist!
it bring the teeth closer together
Answer It depends on how far apart the gap is..but it can easily be fixed. My whole life i had a big gap in my teeth and i didnt like to smile o…r talk to people, So then at the beginning of my 10th grade year i decided that i wasnt going to go through this anymore. So i bought some rubber bands..not normal teeth bands, just like small rubber bands for your hair that cost like $2.50 at the beauty supply store and my gap closed with in a month but as that one closed another gap developed between the two teeth on both sides of the front two ones so i just moved the rubber bands and started putting them around all four of the front teeth and that gap closed with in like a week since my gums were looser cuz the front two teeth that moved. Now my teeth are straight and i always get compliments on my teeth and smile! And my Dentist was shocked that i fixed my teeth myself and with normal hair bands..He said i did a really good job! I Hope This Helped!
Answer go to www.teethgap.com!
Answer Oh, you know. If your teeth are black and healthy, then you have a good chance of getting some pretty positive results. Answer Teeth effect bands f…rom www.teethgap.com really work. You stretch the teeth effect band when you put it around your teeth. Since the band is stretched out it pulls the teeth towards one another because it wants to contract. This pull will take place no matter the size of your gap. The part of the mouth that receives the most force while wearing the band is the gap between the teeth. Therefore, as your teeth come together it pushes on the gum between your teeth causing it to contract. No new gaps should appear.
Yes they work!! But don't buy it from that site its a rip off, go to eBay and type in gapfix, its 3 bucks opposed to twenty bucks for the same product! trust me it works just …like teeth effects because i bought both and was pissed off when i got the same exact product
Nothing, it just happens when you don't take care of your teeth very well

Bands do not work that effectively . If you want to close the gaps between your teeth you will need to see an orthodontist .
