Is There a Fast, Simple Way to Fix a Gap in My Teeth?

Spacing between the teeth, no matter how small, can sometimes lead to issues with your confidence. And why should you live your life not ever wanting to smile?

Luckily, cosmetic dentistry offers lots of different ways to fix the gap between your teeth, some of which are so fast they can be done in one sitting! Here are 3 ways to bring your teeth closer together and achieve the smile of your dreams:

Dental Bonding

By far, this is the fastest way to fill the gap in your teeth. The dentist will apply a resin material to fill in the gap and lighten it with a special light. The resin is tooth-colored and will perfectly blend with the rest of your teeth.

This procedure is done in one single visit, and it’s completely reversible as the dentist doesn't have to change the shape or size of your teeth to do it. While it’s like an instant fix, you should know it’s not a permanent solution.

The resin material can stain over time, leading to other types of appearance problems. Additionally, this material can also chip and break in the future, in which case you will have your gapped teeth back.

Invisalign or Braces

Not exactly an instant fix, but a very popular one that can help you address even more severe cases of tooth misalignments or gaps. Your orthodontist can help you decide if metal braces or clear Invisalign trays are the best options for you, as each comes with its own pros and cons.

In any case, both procedures do require a bit of financial investment, and it will take some time until your teeth are pulled into their most optimal position.


Veneers are a good option to upgrade the appearance of your teeth, especially if you have a lot of different issues with them. They are generally not necessary just for fixing a small gap, but if your teeth are far apart, discolored, or even chipped, veneers are a fast way to change your entire smile.

They are essentially ceramic or porcelain teeth placed on top of the real teeth and bonded together. Veneers are a long-term solution because they are quite sturdy and don’t easily stain. But, they are a bit costly, and some people need a bit of time getting used to them, both in terms of look and feel.
