Least expensive way to close my gapped teeth
Bonding will be less expensive at first, but if you look at lifetime costs, orthodontics or Invisalign will come out ahead. With bonding, you will require either periodic touchups or redoing them in 5-10 years at additional cost. So up front costs will be less, but total lifetime overall costs, ortho or Invisalign will be less expensive. You will also get a better, healthier result with ortho or Invisalign. That being said, if you decide against orthodontics or Invisalign, bonding could be an option for you. We would do a Smile Preview so you could see exactly how bonding would look before you committed financially to move forward with treatment. We are often surprised at how well bonding can improve a smile when at first look it doesn't seem possible. Our Smile Preview, which is placed on your teeth in a short amount of time, eliminates disappointment as you can choose not to do the treatment if you do not like what you see with your Smile Preview. And yes, the smile preview is complimentary!
