Can Porcelain Veneers Close Gaps Between Teeth?

By: Dr. Victoria Veytsman


Gaps between teeth can be a cause of embarrassment for many people. You may feel self-conscious when smiling or taking pictures in public. While braces are a common treatment for correcting gaps, not everyone is ready or willing to commit to the lengthy process. Cosmetic Dental Studios in New York and Beverly Hills may recommend porcelain veneers to close the gaps and improve your appearance.

Dr. Victoria Veytsman understands that every patient has different concerns when it comes to their smile, which is why we offer a wide range of cosmetic dentistry options. Call now to book a consultation and learn how porcelain veneers work.

Why are gaps between teeth a problem?

Many potential issues can arise from having unwanted gaps between your teeth. These include:

  • Poor self-esteem: As mentioned, gaps can be a source of self-consciousness for many people.
  • Difficulty chewing: Gaps make it challenging to chew properly, especially when it comes to harder or stickier foods.
  • Speech problems: Gaps can change the way you speak, causing a lisp or other problems with pronunciation.
  • Increased risk of tooth decay: Food particles and bacteria can get stuck in the gaps and lead to plaque buildup, increasing your risk of cavities and other dental issues.

What are porcelain veneers?

Porcelain veneers cover common cosmetic dental issues with a thin, custom shell bonded to the front of your teeth. They are made from medical-grade porcelain materials and can match your natural tooth enamel and shape. Veneers are popular because they often address multiple concerns at once.

Other benefits of porcelain veneers include:

  • Durable: With proper care, porcelain veneers can last for many years.
  • Stain-resistant: The material used to make veneers is highly resistant to staining, allowing you to eat your favorite meals without worrying about discoloration.
  • Less invasive: Unlike braces, which require brackets and wires, porcelain veneers are simply bonded to the surface of your teeth.

How do porcelain veneers help with gaps?

Porcelain veneers can successfully close gaps to create a uniform and aesthetically pleasing smile. The process involves removing a small amount of enamel from the affected teeth and then bonding the custom-made veneers in place. Patients at Cosmetic Dental Studios in New York or Beverly Hills are thrilled with their results and report feeling satisfied with their smiles.

What if I have a large gap between my teeth?

While porcelain veneers can help with minor to moderate gaps between teeth, more extensive gaps may require orthodontics or another similar solution. A consultation at our office will determine the best possible course of action for your specific needs. During this appointment, Dr. Veytsman can discuss your goals and create a custom treatment plan.
