While there are some celebrities who embrace the gap between their two front teeth, most patients consider this unsightly space as bothersome and unattractive. Fixing your front tooth gap, however, may not be as complex or costly as you may think. Depending on the cause and size of your dental gap, there is more than one way to close this space and help you regain a confident smile.
Every patient is unique. This is especially true when it comes to cosmetic dentistry and front tooth gaps. Therefore, you may not benefit from the same treatment as your friend or family member with a front tooth gap. A cosmetic dentist will consider the following factors when determining the best method of correction:
- Size of the gap
- Condition of the adjacent teeth
- Presence of other alignment issues
- Missing teeth
- Habits that may have caused the gap

If your alignment and dental health are in check, the size of your tooth gap becomes a primary consideration for how we treat it. It may be as simple as cosmetic dental bonding to build up the sides of the adjacent teeth or as complex as replacing a missing tooth with a dental implant. Here are some of the possible options for closing gaps within the front teeth:
