Filling in spaces between teeth with dental veneers.
Dentists routinely fill in gaps between teeth by way of placing porcelain veneers. They're best suited for applications where they're not placed under great stress (as compared to dental crowns, veneers are relatively brittle). This digital smile makeover provides an example of such a situation.
Dental issues and concerns:
- When you look at this "before" picture, most likely the first thing that you notice is the gap between this person's two center teeth. (Dentists refer to this type of space as a diastema.)
- To a lesser degree, there seems to be some additional spacing between these same teeth and their neighbors off to the side. (Especially on the patient's left side.)
- As a side note, when this woman submitted her picture, she stated in her email that having orthodontic treatment (braces) was not an option that she wanted to consider.
