Mind the (Dental) Gap

A gap-toothed smile hasn’t stopped people like Elton John, Madonna, Anna Paquin, David Letterman, Lauren Hutton, and Laurence Fishburne from reaching celebrity status – in fact, that aesthetic quirk has only added to their star power. But if you’re unhappy with your own gap-toothed smile, it could be affecting your professional success.

For gap-toothed people who don’t find this element of their appearance either appealing or charming, it can lead them to alter the way they talk just to cover up the space. They may change the way they smile to avoid revealing their gap. This kind of behavior can become a habit and leave you looking like you’re nervous, uncomfortable, and not at all confident – none of which will be of any help to you professionally or socially.

There are varying degrees of gap teeth. Whether your gap is big enough to fit another tooth between or practically unnoticeable, your dissatisfaction means it’s time to do something about it – and at Smile Texas we can and have fixed all manner of gap-toothed smiles. We’ve created smile makeovers using dental implants, porcelain veneers, and porcelain crowns. Your look can be changed in as little as a two-visit smile makeover. And, if you have anxiety about the dentist’s chair, our sedation dentistry options can make the procedures even easier for you.

When you’re unhappy with how your smile looks, one tiny change can make all the difference in your self-esteem and the energy you exude. Contact us today to find out how we can help you and revitalize your smile.
