What is the bet way to fix gaps between teeth? Dental bonding? I have a rather large gap between my top two front teeth that I have never liked. What would be the best way to take care of this? .

In brief: Get an exam

It's best to seek the opinion of a cosmetic dentist and an orthodontic specialist to determine what is best in your situation.
If you only have the space between your upper front two teeth and you are adding 1.5 mm of bonding to the width of each tooth - you want to be assured they won't look as wide as chicklets (unusually wide).

In brief: This

This really depends on many factors.
Bonding or veneers can work if the closure doesn't make the teeth look too "fat". Otherwise orthodontic treatment may be the answer.

Dr. Scharf is right.
There are many reasons why the gap exists. The correct diagnosis will lead to the proper treatment. Orthodontic treatment will be my first choice if possible. If the teeth cannot be moved, composite bonding is the first conservative choice.
