Compressor bands such as "Teeth Effects" are used 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. It should close in several days.

*Always consult your dentist or orthodontist -- changing your bite can affect those teeth and the teeth around it.

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
