Is Orthofill bands good for fill the gap between teeth?

Hi.. I have multiple gaps in my teeth although they are straight.. I have come across a site called orthofill bands . It had a lot of positive reviews even pictures. But do these really work and are they safe? And if they do work are they permanent, and do the gaps either side get bigger?

hi even if ur teeth are aligned properly and u feel u have gaps in between ur teeth u have to check ur gum status because in between teeth the gap will be filled by interdental gingiva if any dirt and deposits around the teeth gums will be receeded and there will be gaps so check ur periodontist or gum specialist to know ur gingival health
