Age advancement can cause spacing in the front teeth. This is usual pattern observed mostly in females. There may be other reasons that may cause gaping in front teeth such as :
- Trauma from occlusion
This dental defect can be fixed with the help of tooth coloured filling. The material used for filling the gap is composites. There is a restriction when using composites to fill gap such as patients would have to be careful not to bite or put pressure white eating through the front teeth.
On rare occasion if the patient is hesitant for composite filling, the gap can be closed with the help of E-max crowns. These crowns are ceramic shade and gives the appearance of a naturally beautiful smile (i.e. tooth coloured).
