Having a small gap between your front two teeth can be an embarrassing cosmetic problem to have. You may want to have the small gap closed but without having to go through an orthodontic treatment.
Unfortunately retainers are not designed or strong enough to comprehensively close a gap between teeth, they are meant to retain your teeth after they have been straightened.
Even though retainers are not a suitable option for gaps, there are also other treatments that may be suitable for you:
Composite Build-ups simply uses composite material to build the teeth up to meet each other, giving a very natural look whilst closing the troublesome gap!
This will be a much more cost effective treatment than having braces but it is also important to note that this will not be as a long term solution as orthodontics!
Porcelain Veneers can be seen very similar to false finger nails in how they work. A thin porcelain veneer would be bonded to the surfaces of your natural teeth, which gives the impression of perfect teeth with no gaps!
With both composite build ups and porcelain veneers the dentist would specifically and uniquely design the end result based on your features, to give you the most natural and beautiful smile.
