Gap in front teeth- tooth bonding can fix it?

Depends on size: A small diastema can be easily restored with two bonded restorations (one on each side). If the space is large, it is more difficult: the bonding tends to break off and the two centrals tend to look large in comparison to your other teeth. Please consult with a local dentist who can examine you.
