Growth and development of the face sometimes leaves a minor blemish in a Smile. It is not natural to have a wide gap between front teeth BUT, and if a dentist catches this early ( by age 9 ), it can be helped to close correctly.
Leaving the gap through teenage years pushes the remaining teeth further apart and to correct the gap at a later age can be an expensive option / braces / veneers.
In some cultures, a gap is a sign of "Good Luck" and "Fortune", but for the most of us, it is an unsightly presentation and makes us self-conscious.
If your child is developing a wide gap in the front teeth, do come in for a chat to know what can be done to correct this. Call us on 09-6315416 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment.

We had a story yesterday about a New Zealander living in Sydney who's caused quite a stir online after posting a video listing reasons why Australia is better than NZ. It prompted a lot of debate so we'd be interested to hear your thoughts on the differences between the countries. Do you think one is better than the other and, if so, why? Please remember your comment could be included in an article unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.
