Gaps in teeth is caused if there is too much space in the jaw for the teeth. If the space in the jaw is more than the total space required by the teeth, then there will be gaps between the teeth.
On the other side, if there is less space in the jaw for the teeth, then it results in crooked teeth. So, the size of the jaw should be just enough for the teeth to be in a straight position. It should not be too much to cause gaps in teeth, and not too less to cause crooked teeth.
So, the space in the mouth should be enough for the teeth to be in a straight position, and the space in the mouth should not too much that it can cause gaps in the teeth.
The gaps in teeth can happen if:
All the above conditions can cause gaps in teeth.
Lumineers (also known as dental laminates) is a type of dental veneers. It is a thin cover of teeth. Lumineers has a thickness of 0.2-0.3 mm. It is made from a tooth-colored material that covers the front side of the teeth.
Lumineers is permanently placed (glued) on the front surface of the teeth to fill the space in the teeth. It also gives strength to the teeth. Lumineers last for over 10 years.
It takes 12-24 months to slowly remove the gaps in teeth using braces. The time required to keep the braces on the teeth depends on how much alignment of the teeth is required.
Veneers are a permanent solution for teeth whitening, remove stains on teeth, remove teeth gaps, and fix broken teeth.
Veneers and Lumineers are placed in 3-4 days in two parts.
First Visit: In the first visit, the dentist does a complete checkup and takes an impression of the mouth. In case of veneers, the impression is taken after reducing the teeth, whereas for lumineers, impression is taken without tooth reduction. The first visits takes 30-60 minutes. Veneers are made in 2-3 days.
Second Visit: After a gap of 2-3 days, in the second visit, the veneers are permanently glued to the teeth surface using a very strong chemical.
The second visit takes a longer time because each veneer or lumineer takes 20-30 minutes to apply on one tooth. So, if you have multiple veneers then it can take up to 7-8 hours to apply on all teeth.
Multiple veneers are used in the dental treatment. Each tooth requires one veneer. Therefore, the total cost of veneers is calculated by multiplying the cost of one veneer with the total number of veneers.
Total cost of veneers in USA = $ 1260 X total number of veneers
Total cost of veneers outside of USA = $ 90 X total number of veneers
Example, for 10 veneers, the cost will be:
Cost in USA
$ 1260 X 10
Cost outside of USA
$ 90 X 10
Veneers are very expensive in USA, but you can save a lot of money by traveling to an affordable location outside of USA for 3-4 days for the dental treatment.
For example, at our clinic, the cost of dental veneers is $ 90 per tooth which is 14 times lower than the average cost of $ 1260 per tooth in USA. So, you can save a lot of money, and at the same time enjoy a free holiday trip.
