Yes you can. Your original tooth is still there (it has only been ground down to a point to enable the cap to go on) and it's the roots that you want straightened.

You could get Veneers on your front two teeth which will close the gap. Or you could use orthodontic bands to redistribute the space. * This should be done through consultation with your dentist or orthodontist, because it can change your bite and the pressure on adjacent teeth.

You will have to move the teeth unless veneers are an option. Consult your dentist. They can invisalign just the front/uppers & it may not be much more than veneers.

Dental Veneers Can Brighten Your Smile?

More and more people are dissatisfied with the appearance of their teeth. For this reason, dental veneers have become very popular. Veneers are used to treat several situations. Discolored teeth, worn down or chipped teeth, or teeth that are crooked, may all benefit from veneers. Veneers or laminates are thin shells that are bonded to the front of the tooth. Each veneer is custom-made to fit your individual need. Veneers can be made of either porcelain or resin. Resin veneers are thinner and require less removal of the natural tooth. Porcelain veneers, on the other hand, resist stains and have more natural "sparkle". You and your dentist can decide which is best for you. The actual process of applying the veneers is not complicated. Initially you will consult with your dentist and explain what it is that you hope to achieve. The dentist will examine your teeth and will evaluate whether or not veneers are appropriate for you. Following the initial consultation a follow-up visit is required to prepare the tooth for the veneers. The dentist will remove a portion of the tooth and will make an impression of your mouth. The impression, or model, is sent out to a dental lab that will make the actual veneer. If needed, the dentist will apply temporary veneers until the permanent ones are ready. At your final visit the dentist will check the color and fit of the permanent veneers and will continue to trim them until he or she is satisfied with the fit. Finally the veneer is applied to the tooth and the dentist will "activate" the chemicals in the cement which will cause it to cure quickly. Lastly the dentist will clean the tooth of any excess cement and evaluate the all-over fit and appearance. Veneers are permanent and the process is not reversible. There may be some sensitivity to hot and/or cold or the color of the veneer may not be an exact match to your natural teeth. Veneers can also be expensive. Even though there are some drawbacks, most will agree that it is a small sacrifice for a lovely smile.

Is there a way to close a gap between an adult's teeth without braces and how long does it take?

I was looking for some cheap and invisible way to close my teeth gap. I found out that Teeth effect bands are the quickest and cheapest way to close teeth gap and they are clear bands. I am 35 and I had big gap between my front teeth. I used teeth effect bands from for $19.99 and it closed my teeth gap in my front teeth in less than 1 month. You can either use: 1- Bonding (white fillings) which take only one appointement 2- Porcelain veneers which take two appointements. 3- Invisible orthodontistry (Invisalign) which takes at least a year for a full mouth straightening of your teeth. Yes, teeth effect bands from can be used to close your gap without going to the dentist. That "teeth effects" stuff sounds like a gimmick. I doubt if it will be able to close teeth gaps. I went to their website and it doesn't look like it can be trusted. They don't even have a phone number. Actually, the teeth gap is not a gimmick and it does work. I had a kind-of small gap and I used the bands. After three weeks, the gap was almost completely gone. I HIGHLY recommend this. I've used the teeth makeover bands, and they worked for me *shrugs* Worth a try. They're cheaper than teeth effect bands and their site is more professional. Invisalign takes about 4 months and it is Cheap around $20

Can teeth bands work if you have a very large gap in your front teeth about 6mm or a quarter inch or is a bridge or veneers the only way to go?

Sometimes when the space between the two central incisors is too large, orthodontics (braces) may be recommended. This usually will take approximately 18-36 months depending on the severity of the bite. If considering crowns, veneers on bonded composite material on the two front teeth, you must consider the space. These restorations may make the teeth look too large and it may make the assymetry of the entire six front look abnormal. The best thing to do is trust the dentist. Sometimes the wait on orthodontics is worth it. J. Holsworth, RDH

What is the long-term care for porcelain veneers - Da Vinci Veneers?

Use non-abrasive toothpaste, Supersmile is recommended for veneers and other restorations. Use alcohol free mouthwash as the acohol can damage the bonding material that holds the veneer on - this also means that you should avoid drinking alcohol excessively, I always take a straw if I go out for a drink so the alcohol is not constantly hitting my front teeth that have 6 veneers. Floss alot. The edge of your teeth where the veneer joins the natural tooth is very susceptable to damage because the food particles and plaque now have a little ridge to sit on. Your dentist should clean around your veneers every six months. They can get stained around the edge where the bonding is. Make sure your dentist is using the right materials for cleaning. Non abrasive materials should be used - a regular polish with pumice will damage the surface of the veneer and power polishing equipment such as Prophy-Jet will also roughen the surface causing them to stain. A fine aluminum oxide polish should be used for veneers. Make sure that your hygienest also nows how to treat your veneers. Ultrasonic scalers can chip the edge of the veneers so these should be avoided. A Philips Sonicare is the best power tootbhrush to use on Veneers because of it's gentle cleaning action and abiilty to clean in hard to reach areas. I wouldn't recommend an oscillating toothbrush as these can cause veneers to become loose. Don't pull staples out of stuff with your teeth or open bottles of beer in a similar fashion. Don't snack unless you are willing to clean your teeth after every piggy raid of the fridge. If you don't already have veneers think very hard about whether you can keep up the maintenance. Alot of sites advertising veneers talk alot about how hardwearing they are and how they don't stain, that your natural teeth are protected etc etc but in actual fact it takes alot more care to keep veneers looking good than it does normal teeth. They CAN stain at the edges so if you smoke and thought that a porcelain covering that doesn't stain was the answer for you you will be disappointed. You have to take twice as much care of your gums because if they recede only a tiny bit you will have the edge of the veneer showing and this is unsightly. There are far fewer products that you can safely use on veneers as opposed to normal teeth so be prepared to be constantly checking ingredients and making sure dentists and hygienists are cleaning with the right products. Finally remember that they will last ten years if you are lucky. I am only banking on mine looking good for five years before they will need replacing. I have had them two years and am already saving hard so that in three years time I can get them done again. Hope this helps.

Possibly with some tooth colored fillings. Talk to a dentist and see what they reccomend.I use to have multiple gaps in my teeth. Then one day I came across and it changed my life forever.

How do you fix a gap in your front teeth without going to the dentist?

You can use teeth effect bands to close your gap. Teeth Gap uses special Compressor bands called Teeth Effects to draw your teeth together. They provide "the pull" necessary to move the teeth quickly, and in the right direction. 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.

I have root reabsorption from traumatic orthodontics when I was in my mid -teens. I have very short, millimeters long roots on my top 6 teeth. I have been able to keep my original teeth by keeping my teeth healthy. I had veneers put on my 6 teeth when I was 16, then replaced when I was 34yrs old. I'm 40 and now the veneers need replaced again because of leaking and cavity behind my front tooth. My dentist now wants me to get a gum trim along with the new veneers. Is that healthy? I don't want to compromise and support for my teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry Veneers: The Three Types?

The most popular three types of veneers are: ceramic, resin composite, and Empress. All vary in price and some are more suited to specific uses than others. Your cosmetic dentist is the best judge of the best type of application for you.Ceramic VeneersCeramic veneers are made of strong, durable ceramic and formed into very thin shells which are placed over an existing tooth. This additional layer adds bulk to the tooth and can make it feel oversized when compared the adjacent teeth. It may also feel uncomfortable for the patient inside the mouth. Your dentist will remove a thin layer of tooth structure from the front and sides of the tooth ensure a proper fit for the ceramic layer. The original color of the tooth will also be replicated to allow for a natural look. The process usually takes two visits to complete.Resin Composite VeneersThese are perhaps the simplest and easiest veneers to apply. They are simpler and may be slightly less functional than other types of veneers, but can be completed in as little as one visit. The tooth is shaped and the veneer is applied in much the same manner as ceramic veneers. Your dentist will apply the composite that best matches the color and shade of existing teeth. A special light is used to fuse the veneer to the tooth, then polished to look natural.Empress VeneersEmpress veneers may be the most popular and advanced of all the types used. These offer the best fit, wear similar to enamel, and are non-abrasive to other teeth and most dental structures in the mouth. Empress veneers are good enough to often be chosen over more expensive orthodontic treatments. They are able to close gaps between teeth, whiten and create a superior smile. Empress veneers provide the best aesthetic and durable product for these applications. They are made of super high-quality, glass ceramic and have the least invasive presence in the mouth over the long term. Approximately 30 million patients worldwide have had these veneers applied with excellent results.Veneers are considered a permanent treatment. As with any dental procedure, proper care and maintenance is required. There are no substitutes for seeing a dentist with cosmetic credentials to advise you of the best type of veneer to use.
