When You Realize One of Your Tooth is Longer than the Others
Posted on 10/10/2022 by Dick Hikade, DDS
A lovely, healthy grin makes you feel much better about yourself and gives you greater self-assurance. It can be upsetting to realize that one of your teeth is longer than the others and that you are not getting the smile you want. You are fortunate since it is possible to alter this and improve your comfort. One of our dentists will suggest a course of action that will give you the smile you've always wanted.
This is the best option if your front teeth appear longer than the rest of your teeth. The veneers are the best since they are constructed of porcelain that mimics the appearance of real teeth. No one will realize that you have veneers because they are invisible. If you want to brighten your smile, these are the greatest solutions because they can stay a longer time. Long front teeth will ensure that the teeth look identical and will enable you to flash the grin you've always wanted in public.
When a tooth is longer than the surrounding teeth, this treatment approach can be beneficial. Fillings can aid in situations when teeth have sharp edges that hurt the cheeks and gums. If teeth have a triangular form, the dentist will use fillings to make them look more normal. When the teeth are filled, they may make space and move back into their usual position, which will help to address the apparent length disparity.
When one of your teeth appears to be longer than the other, it may be a sign that your mouth is crowded. One of our dentists will advise you to have the tooth extracted, especially if it is at the back. This is because it could lead to the shifting of other teeth in the mouth.
