Correcting a Gap-Tooth Smile in Escondido

Multiple Solutions for Eliminating Gaps

Some people embrace their gap-tooth smiles and some don’t. If you are looking for a solution, Dr. Jeffry Kerbs, a cosmetic dentist located in Escondido, has it. The clinical term for a gap-tooth smile is diastema. It is a space between the two upper front teeth. Dr. Kerbs offers many solutions to these patients, including braces, Invisalign, cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers and porcelain crowns, all of which can correct a gap-tooth smile.

Dr. Kerbs looks at each person individually and forms a personalized treatment plan. He looks at all of the options and determines which is best for his patient. Dr. Kerbs is an accredited member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, which makes him an expert in his field. What this means to patients is that they will get the most natural-looking results possible.

Cosmetic bonding is a great option to close a gap-tooth smile. It is a conservative way of adding tooth-colored filling material to reshape the teeth and close the space. Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells that go over existing teeth with minimal preparation of the tooth underneath. The porcelain veneers can close the gap. Dr. Kerbs makes the new teeth look so natural that it’s nearly impossible to tell any work has been done. Porcelain crowns are another option, especially if the existing teeth are damaged or have large cavities, previous restorations or cracks.

Dr. Kerbs encourages you to seek a professional with extensive training when you want cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic dentistry is an art and deserves a well-trained dentist with an eye for perfection to achieve the desired result.
