Hi doctor,

I was looking into veneers and invisalign to fix the gap between my front teeth. I am not sure what would fix them. So, I am looking for some initial advice. I have attached a picture for you to view. Thank you.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have gone through your query and attached photograph (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

  • First of all, let me know you that the space between upper front teeth, which you are having, is called midline diastema.
  • It can occur due to many reasons like abnormal frenal attachment, tooth-arch material discrepancy, habits like thumb sucking and tongue thrusting in childhood.
  • According to the cause, midline diastema can be treated with fixed or removal appliances, composite crowns, veneers, frenectomy, gingivoplasty, etc.
  • So, consult your nearby dentist to rule out the cause and plan the treatment.

Investigations to be done:

OPG (orthopantomogram) to check the condition of the roots of the upper front teeth.

Regarding follow up:

For further doubts consult a dentist online.---> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/dentist
