Recent Gaps Between Front Teeth, What are my options?
The gaps are most likely being caused by excessive biting pressure on your front teeth . You should first have your bite checked and adjusted to relieve the pressure areas as the gaps may continue to widen if this is not done. Your options to correct the spacing are either Invisalign, braces, porcelain veneers, or resin veneers (bonding). Your two front teeth appear to be narrow. Veneers could widen your teeth and make them much more aesthetically pleasing. I would recommend four veneers and a bite adjustment for best results.
