What's in a Gap? By Kellyn Hodges on June 10, 2015

What's in a Gap?

 "Gaps" or spaces between teeth have cosmetic, as well as functional implications on the smile. Gaps are generally perceived in our society as less attractive and desirable, and when our teeth are not in the ideal positions, there are often functional problems as well. The bite may be off and the natural cleansing properties of the teeth may not be present. For many people, closing spaces in their teeth can increase their self-confidence as well as the cosmetics and function for the smile.
