Receding Gums Ask The Dentist Richard Winter Question:
Veneers for receding Gums? I have a gap between the front 2 teeth which is getting bigger due to my back teeth being pulled and gums receding.

Am I eligibile to get veneers to close the gap? ... Visitor from Ontario Canada

I can't answer your question with the information you provided.

Do you have splaying (teeth spreading out - as bone is lost, teeth splay or lean forward creating multiple spaces that didn't exist before) because of gum disease?

How do your teeth fit together? Do you have previous fillings in these teeth or current decay? How big is the gap?

You need to see a dentist and get x-rays, a comprehensive exam and ask them this question.
