Spaces Between Teeth – Bloomington, IN

Close the Gaps in Your Smile!

Do large spaces between your teeth make you hide your mouth? You can close the gaps between your teeth without brackets and wires. Invisalign in Bloomington gives you a discreet and sophisticated solution to get the smile of your dreams. The FDA-approved treatment uses clear plastic aligners to gradually move your teeth into their ideal positions. In as few as 12 months, we can help you can smile, chew, and speak confidently.

Why are My Teeth Gapped?

There are several types of alignment issues that can occur, like overcrowded or rotated teeth. Among one of the most common concerns are abnormally large spaces. This is often the result of an underlying factor, such as:

  • Gum disease
  • Thumb-sucking or using a pacifier as a child
  • Small teeth
  • Tongue thrust
  • Missing teeth
  • Large Frenulum

No matter the cause, we can give you a beautiful smile without metal braces.

Am I a Candidate for Invisalign?

woman with gapped teethNot all gaps need to be treated with Invisalign. If the spaces are small, you may be a candidate for veneers or cosmetic bonding. If the gaps are large, Invisalign may be right for you. We perform the comprehensive consultation you need to see if the clear aligners are the best option for you. Besides your alignment issues, it may be the right solution if:

  • You want a less noticeable treatment.
  • You want quick results.
  • You are committed to following your treatment plan.
  • You maintain your oral hygiene and regular dental appointments.

How Does Invisalign Work?

clear alignersInvisalign is different from metal braces because it does not use brackets or wires to pull your teeth into position. Instead, we take a digital impression of your mouth to map the movement of your teeth. The information is transferred to a series of aligners.

You wear each aligner for at least 22 hours per day and switch to the next one in the series after 1 week. As you progress through the series, your teeth move closer together. It takes about 12 months to finish your series of aligners. You will briefly need a retainer after you finish your treatment to prevent your teeth from moving back into position.

Benefits of Invisalign
