GAPS BTWN TEETH CAN BE CLOSED IN 2 WAYS WITHOUT OPTING FOR ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT.
FIRSTLY DEPENDING ON THE SPACE B/W TWO TEETH IF ITS NOT MORE THAN 2-3 CMS THEN CAN BE DONE DIRECTLY ON THE SAME SINGLE VISIT, CALLED DIRECT TREATMENT WITH TOOTH COLORED FILLING MATERIALS CALLED COMPOSITE.
SECONDLY CAN BE DONE INDIRECTLY BY GIVING YOU CROWNS AND LAMINATES DEPENDING UPON HOW MUCH GAP NEEDS O BE CLOSED.
IF YOU STILL HAVE ANY DOUBTS CAN CALL 9920984915

hello,
apart from braces if the gap is little big then you can go for ceramic caps and also removable orthodontic appliances can be tried out. its better to visit a dentist so that he could checkout the severity of the gap and suggest you an expert opinion. take care

Hello!
Since you don't want to opt for fixed orthodontic treatment, removable appliances like split labial bow can be used for treatment. This is less costelier than fixed orthodontic treatment. The second method can be closure of midline diastema or the gap between your front teeth using composite resins. Veneers can also be used to mask the space. Take care.

Hello,
Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
The gaps between your front teeth can easily be closed without using braces. There are plenty of options to choose from. You can get Composite Diastema Closure procedure done. However the artificial material may discolor with passing time demanding repeatation of procedure.
A smart option in these cases would be Ceramic Veneer (IPS Emax or Lava), which looks brilliant with minimal grinding of tooth enamel. Another option may be placing of crown, which needs grinding of considerable amount of tooth structure.
Evaluating the available options I would recommend Ceramic Veneers, which are highly esthetic and durable.
Hope this helps.
Thanks

If you want cheapest and single sitting treatment, than tooth color composite space closure is the only option. A better treatment option is crowning your 2 front teeth. Veneers cannot close "big gap". Crowns are long lasting and enhance your smile. Zirconia crowns are best, both in terms of esthetics and strength, but they are very costly. You can get PFM crowns, which have acceptable appearance and are economical. Composite space closure is least expensive, but remember it wont stay for long, moreover, it tends to stain. If you have just spacing problem in your midline front teeth, than it can be closed using removable orthodontic appliances, which are not expensive, but if your upper lip muscle attachment is very low and thick than this treatment is not for you. Remember braces treatment for space closure is of short duration, i.e around 6 months, so the cost of this treatment is low for you. Braces is the best treatment, as it will shift your natural teeth to desirable alignment.

There are various modalities which can help you get that sparkling smile back ranging from composite direct veneers to indirect veneers and laminates. Its an esthetic treatment so u have lot of options and choice, Your dentist can offer you best option with its economics explained. Direct composite veneers can be a very conservative and economic way. Its an optional treatment so you can plan your savings and get it spread over a longer time with temporaries to begin with.
