Dr. Garvey loves to do esthetic dentistry in conjunction with other dental specialists! Many people have lived with spacing of their upper teeth which is often hereditary. The following four photos present a patient of ours with spacing of his upper front teeth:
- 1) Start photo large space between front teeth
- 2) After frenectomy and the two front teeth moved together with rubber band
- 3) After crown work on all four upper front teeth (by general dentist)
- 4) Retainer to hold teeth in place
You might think that we did braces or Invisalign? No, we did not! Dr. Garvey did a laser frenectomy and had the patient wear a rubber band between his two front teeth without any braces. After the front teeth were moved closer together, we sent him to his dentist who constructed porcelain crowns. I asked the dentist to fuse the central incisor crowns together so the space does not open and we constructed a retainer.
