What is a Diastema?

Many patients have a small gap between their teeth, often between the upper two front teeth. The clinical term for this abnormality is called a diastema. Diastemas often emerge when patients are younger and the gap just never seems to close over time.

For patients who experience a diastema and would like to consider cosmetic dentistry treatments to relieve the issue, there are a few great options:

1. Invisalign or other orthodontic treatment can push the teeth together to close the small gap.

2. Lumineers, a more modern, extremely thin form of veneers, can be used to provide an easy and safe treatment option.

3. If the problem results from an oversized labial frenum, then a surgical procedure called a frenectomy can be scheduled.

Regardless of the treatment option, it’s essential to talk to a qualified dentist to determine the best procedure for making your smile as beautiful as you want it to be.
