If you’ve found this blog, you probably hate your gapped teeth, which never closed on their own as you got older. Or perhaps you’re noticing new gaps forming between teeth due to gum disease and gum recession?
It’s not essential to treat gapped teeth, but they can cause oral health problems involving bacterial growth and plaque build-up. So, if embracing your gapped teeth is not for you, then fixing them couldn’t be easier with the latest innovations in cosmetic dentistry.
- 1-hour treatments for small gaps

Three ways to fix spaces between teeth
Our cosmetic dentists usually recommend three types of cosmetic procedures to close gaps between teeth (two of which do not involve braces or aligners). All of which are available on 0% finance or longer terms extending to 60 months.
- £295 per tooth
- £24.58 per month (0%)
- 1-hour treatment
- Gaps of 0.5mm or less
Completed in a single trip to the dentist, composite bonding is fast, quick and easy on the finances. But for all its benefits, composite bonding will not last forever and must be renewed every five to seven years.
However, it’s easy to upkeep and renew, offering a faster process than porcelain veneers, and means you won’t need to wear a retainer either.
- Composite and porcelain options
- Prices from £350 per tooth / £29.16 per month (0%)
- Same-day treatment with composite, three-week treatment with porcelain
- Gaps between 1-3mm (sometimes larger)
Dental veneers are a great way to fix several smile problems in one. Offering a solution for chipped, discoloured and gapped teeth, veneers are likely one of your best long-term solutions.
Veneers come in two forms, composite or porcelain; composite can save patients money but benefit from better durability than porcelain. Porcelain veneers last up to 15 years, with composite veneers lasting up to seven years. Explore costs in greater detail.
Composite veneers are immediately sculpted to the tooth in one dental visit, whereas porcelain veneers are custom-made, taking three appointments over three weeks.
- Reliably closes gaps up to 6mm per arch
- Prices from £2,499
- £208.25 per month (0%)
- Treatment takes 3-6 months
Invisalign, alongside braces, is one of the most effective ways to close gaps between teeth. However, some patients prefer Invisalign over traditional braces, which are more discreet and faster.
Depending on the size of your gaps, Invisalign can take 12 weeks to 3 months to correct gapped teeth (for gaps no larger than 1.5 mm) – and even faster for a gap between the front two teeth.
Invisalign will only work on gaps no larger than 6 millimetres, so gaps over that limit will require fixed orthodontic appliances like metal braces.
Remember that a retainer must be worn nightly following the aligner treatment.
