Hi lybrate-user, there two three methods which can help you in covering the spacing problem. Most important thing here is how much time you have? 1. If you have ample time, anybody will first advise you to go orthodontic (braces) treatment. As it is a better and most conservative way of closing the space. 2. Now if you do not have sufficient time, then you can go for cosmetic correction, which can either be in the form of composites (tooth coloured fillings) or ceramic laminates and veneers. Your local dentist should be able to advise you better regarding what can be done. So it would be our suggestion to get it checked for all the possibilities of the treatment.
yes, there are two types of techniques by which this space closure can be achieved. One is the cosmetic treatment done for minor spacing in which some tooth colored fillings, laminates or veneers hides this space. Other one is orthodontic treatment for larger spaces, in which braces or wires or elastics are used to orient the teeth in correct position. I suggest you to visit a good cosmetic dentist and take the opinion about the treatment after proper diagnosis of your condition.
