solutions for diastema
Diastema, which is just a larger than average gap between 2 teeth is the most common reason that people look for cosmetic dentistry. It is sometimes caused by a large labial frenum between the front teeth. A labial frenum is the muscular tissue that attaches the gum to the upper lip.
We hear many stories about improving self confidence or the way you look by having cosmetic treatment but many people are happy with their smiles even with the gaps, as are the people around them. Brigitte Bardot was considered one of the most beautiful women in the world and David Letterman and Madonna seem to have ample confidence. However, how you feel about your diastema is personal to you and if you want it removed it can be easily done.
Diastema can be eliminated by
- A frenectomy (removal of the frenum), this is a simple procedure using a laser costing under 90 EUR (approx. $105)
- Orthodontics, a brace can be fitted to bring the teeth closer together, this may take a couple of years but is minimally invasive. Traditional braces or aligners such as Invisilign may be used.
- Veneers, these are minimally invasive and give instant results. It is not just the the two teeth on either side of the gap which are covered, for large gaps around 6-8 of the teeth are used to spread the effect of the gap.
- Crowns, this is the most invasive solution but gives effective durable and instant results. As with the veneers, around 6-8 of the teeth will be prepared to spread the effect of the gap so that all the teeth look perfectly positioned.
The best method for you will be decided after X rays and a consultation with the dentist and usually a combination of the above is used. Due to the number of teeth that need treating it becomes cost effective to go abroad to close the gap in your teeth. To have 8 crowns fitted in Hungary will cost around 2,400 EUR or around 2800 dollars.
