Closure (or narrowing) of a widening gap between the upper front teeth
A narrow 1-2 mm gap between the upper front teeth (anterior midline diastema) is considered a sign of beauty (“kazigo”) in many societies and this is usually left unclosed in the majority of the people.
However for those who have a thick strip of tissue between the upper front teeth (an active labial frenulum) this will cause a continous widening of this gap.
This often leaves an unsightly gap and affects the beauty of your smile.
If the widening of the gap is being caused by an active labial frenulum pushing the teeth aside, you will be advised on how this can be surgically remedied. The space closure (or narrowing) is usually completed by a short phase of treatment either with holding wires or with braces as required. The space between your front teeth can be completely closed if you so wish. Alternatively we can narrow it to exactly how you want it.
So if you think the widening gap is taking the cute out of your otherwise amazing smile, we can help. Come to Neptune Dental clinic for a consultation and more information about redefining your smile.
