Bonding To Close Space
This is quite a large space to completely close with bonding. Might be best to close somewhat with composite to make the space a little less noticeable if you dont want to wear braces.
Invisalign, bonding, veneers
Dear Kitty: You have beautiful teeth that could definitely benefit from some orthodontic treatment. Invisalign was designed exactly for cases like yours. Many dentists and orthodontists will be more than happy to treat you with Invisalign. It is the only way to go in your case. Veneers or bonding are a very short-sighted fix. You will commit yourself to a very expensive treatment plan, very expensive upkeep, and you will have to redo the work every several years down the line. The only thing you will achieve is to slowly ruin your wonderful, beautiful teeth. Please go and consult with an orthodontist about proper orthodontic treatment, Invisalign, and do not compromise your teeth.Best wishes,

Is gap too large for bonding?
I think you could get a result that you would be very happy with using bonding. In order to keep the teeth from appearing too large, bonding should be done on both teeth. In order for you to determine if you would like the result, in our office we do a Smile Preview by placing and shaping material on your teeth in a couple of minutes. If you like what you see, then they are easily removed and you can proceed with the permanent bonding. If you do not like the result that you see with the Smile Preview, then they are removed and you are free to evaluate other options or do nothing.
