Lauren Bacall, Madonna, and Michael Strahan share a commonality other than celebrity status. They each have a recognizable gap or diastema between their front teeth. On some individuals, gaps and spaces in their teeth work…it is their ‘signature’ so to speak or an identifiable family trait they wish to maintain. Unfortunately, for others, gaps and spaces in their teeth can cause a great deal of insecurity. For many, it may perhaps be uncomfortable and could hinder a business promotion or impede social situations.
Another reason for an existing gap or space could be due to a congenitally, (being born without it) missing tooth or having had a tooth extracted in years past. When you are missing a tooth, the surrounding teeth can shift out of position, and can change your bite (the way your teeth fit together).
