Instructions

  1. 1

    Visit your dentist to have composite bonding added to the teeth near the gap. This bonding material is layered onto the surface of teeth to make them wider and fill any spaces.

  2. 2

    Wait for your wisdom teeth to erupt in if they haven't already. If you have not yet reached your teens, having some extra space between your teeth may be a good thing. When your wisdom teeth come in, they push the rest of the teeth forward and close any gaps.

  3. 3

    Have a cosmetic dentist place veneers on your teeth. These pieces are adhered to your current teeth and widen each tooth, filling spaces and covering other imperfections.

  4. 4

    Get braces to push your teeth together to their correct position. Metal braces or invisible braces move your teeth over time and close any gaps.
