The fact is this is often an inherited trait just like the color of your hair. Â Spaces between teeth generally occur genetically when a person is born with less than the normal amount of teeth. Â Teeth spacing can also happen when a person has large jaws and small teeth.
This condition is typically treated with veneers, composite fillings or orthodontic treatment. Â For relatively small spaces, veneers or tooth cups are used to make the teeth appear wider. Â Composite fillings also increase the width of the teeth and close the gaps between them. Â Orthodontic treatment is a longer process and requires the use of an orthodontic retainer to maintain results.
