Closing gap with #veneers #DrSoftTouch
It appears that veneers would be a great option for you. For most cases, I recommend veneering four or more teeth, not just two. Closing your gap with only two veneers would result in those teeth looking much larger than the adjacent teeth. I would recommend doing research online to select an experienced cosmetic dentist that really knows what they are doing. The best indicator to determine if the dentist is going to give you results that you'll be smiling about, is by viewing before and after photos of his/her patients that have undergone similar or the same procedures. I"ll link a before and after photo of a patient of mine who's diastema was completely corrected with porcelain veneers. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
