Can you close teeth gaps with veneers?

Yes, veneers can be used to close gaps between teeth. Veneers are thin shells made of porcelain or composite resin that are bonded to the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance. They can be used to correct a variety of dental problems, including gaps between teeth.

To close a gap using veneers, the dentist will first prepare the teeth by removing a small amount of enamel from the front surface. This is necessary to create enough space for the veneer to be placed without making the tooth look too bulky. The dentist will then take an impression of the teeth and send it to a dental laboratory, where the veneers will be custom-made to fit the patient’s teeth.

Once the veneers are ready, the dentist will bond them to the teeth using a dental adhesive. The veneers are then shaped and polished to blend in with the surrounding teeth. With proper care, veneers can last for many years and provide a natural-looking solution for closing gaps between teeth.

It’s important to note that not all gaps between teeth can be corrected with veneers. In some cases, orthodontic treatment may be necessary to move the teeth into the correct position before veneers can be placed. Your dentist can help you determine the best treatment option for your specific case
