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.

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'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

Will teeth effect bands cause new gaps in other teeth?

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 or 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!
