Hello. You have a good question...

There is generally more than one single way to correct the gap/s which you are talking about. One way is braces, however that may not be specifically what you need. Additionally, a retainer (various types) can often fix the problem, especially if worn regularly at night while sleeping. Some situations/spaces can and are also fixed by having crown/s or veneer/s placed on a couple of teeth.

Here is what I would recommend: I'd make an appointment with your Dentist, where he or she can look at your x-rays and visually inspect to tell you the 1) BEST situation for you, and 2) Best priced situation as well. Your hometown Dentist can best assess what would be the very best situation for you. But the good news, is "something can indeed be done" to fix the spacing which you are talking about! I hope this helps you... Dr. Rampton

Does the above make sense?

If you should have any further thoughts, please do not hesitate, OK?

Your local Dentist should be able to show you the very "best" way to close the gap/s you mentioned above...
