So I’ve got gaps between my 4 front, upper teeth. I’ve always had them, my brother and sister have them too, but they also have much smaller mouths than me so their gaps are nearly non-existent and barely noticeable.
I’ve spoken to a cosmetic dentist about closing these gaps in the past, but the cost has put me off. I’m very eager to get this sorted out as it’s killing my self confidence and stopping me from smiling.
usually Veneers would be enough to close the gaps, I would require 4, one on each of the teeth (that are too small for my mouth apparently) the problem with this is that the proportions of my teeth would be way off, giving them the appearance of being short and stubby, so to couple this procedure a gum-lift has been recommended, I have a particularly gummy smile too, so this would fit nicely. However my top and bottom teeth also dont interlock (I forget the term, sorry) this means my canines are all worn down, and because they’d be sat next to 4 perfect teeth, these too would need work so that they’d fit in with my smile properly, crowns have been suggested for this.
All this work is well and good, but the cost is coming in at around £4000, which is a little bit of a hindrance for me.
any advice you can provide would be greatly helpful and appreciated. happy to provide photographs if necessary.
