Diastema is a condition where there are gaps present between two teeth and it is common in both children and adults, which can lead to dental issues such as food accumulation, cavities, and gum problems. While it is a natural occurrence, It can be aesthetically displeasing. Therefore, gap closure is a crucial and effective solution to prevent dental problems and enhance your smile’s appearance. Our Dentist may suggest cosmetic appliances in addition to braces to address gaps between teeth. Braces alone may not be sufficient to close all gaps, and the ideal correctional measure may vary depending on the cause of the gaps. 


After identifying the underlying issue, the orthodontist can recommend a suitable solution to reduce or eliminate the gaps between the teeth. Other gap closure treatments are Veneers, Crowns, Dental Bonding, and Dental Implants. Veneers can be a quick and affordable solution for closing small gaps between teeth. However, if the gaps are larger, a combination of veneers or dental bonding may be necessary for effective treatment. In some cases, dental implants are required for diastema. Our clinic in Ahmedabad has skilled cosmetic dentists who can create personalized Gap Closure treatment plans to suit your needs.

Understanding Root Causes of Dental Issues

tooth damage


The size of your teeth and jaw is determined by genetics, so if your teeth are naturally smaller in proportion to your jaw, you may have gaps between your teeth.

Gum disease

Small teeth or oversized jaw

When the teeth are smaller in proportion to the jawbone, it can lead to gaps between teeth.

Congenital absence


Certain habits such as nail-biting, using teeth as a tool, or chewing on objects can cause teeth to shift and gaps to form.


Gum Disease

Gum disease can cause the gums to recede, which can create gaps between teeth.

failed root canal

Missing Teeth

If you have missing teeth, the teeth on either side of the gap may shift over time, causing gaps to form.


Tongue thrusting

The habit of pushing the tongue against the front teeth can create gaps over time.

tooth injurery

Uneven Teeth

If your teeth are uneven in size or shape, gaps may occur.


Orthodontic treatment

Sometimes, gaps can be created during orthodontic treatment, particularly if teeth are extracted.

Our Treatment Process

Initial consultation

The initial step is to evaluate the patient’s dental health, medical history, and bone structure. To plan the implant placement and select the right size and kind of implant, the dentist will take x-rays, CT scans, and impressions.

Treatment plan

After the examination, the dentist will develop a treatment plan tailored to your needs. This plan may include orthodontic treatment, cosmetic bonding, or dental veneers.

Dental implants

If a tooth is missing, a dental implant may be placed to replace the missing tooth and close the gap.

Dental bonding

If the gap is small, dental bonding may be used to fill the gap with a tooth-colored resin material.


If the gap is larger, veneers may be placed over the teeth to close the gap and improve the appearance of the teeth.


After the gap has been closed, the dentist or orthodontist may recommend wearing a retainer to help maintain the new position of the teeth. The retainer is typically worn at night and may need to be worn for several months or longer.
