You might have a smile that is a total knockout! While you feel wonderful about most aspects of your grin, there is one thing that’s got you down and you’re not really sure if anything can be done about it. It’s all about tooth length for you! You might be someone who is struggling with a variety of lengths, which make for a smile that doesn’t exactly look sleek and cohesive. Or, you might have just one or two teeth that are sticking out (or are shorter than) compared to the rest. Is there anything that our Riverside, CA team can do, you wonder, in order to help you? The answer is: Of course! Find out how cosmetic dentistry is on your side.
Choose Bonding Or Contouring
Let’s begin with a very simple yet also very effective way of fixing concerns with tooth length. We offer two cosmetic dentistry treatments that are streamlined ways to quickly change the length of your dental tissue. If your tooth is too long, we rely on a treatment known as dental contouring. It’s a way to polish some of that tissue off of your tooth, so you’re left with the slight (and safe) reduction you’re hoping to achieve. Now, what if you want your tooth to appear longer, you wonder? This treatment is called dental bonding. Instead of removing tissue, we build up a material called composite that we will match to the color of your tooth. We shape it onto your tooth, harden it, shine it up, and then your tooth looks longer!
Consider Porcelain Veneers
When you want to fix the length of your tooth or teeth, porcelain veneers often come up as an appropriate cosmetic dentistry solution. Rather than taking away or adding directly onto your tooth, we custom craft little casings out of ceramic that we will bond to your tooth. This is often helpful when you’re dealing with all-over discrepancies with tooth length and what you want is to find a way to achieve symmetry and a balanced appearance.
Don’t Mix Up Misalignment With Length Concerns
Remember: If your teeth are poorly aligned, their lengths may not look as uniform as they could look. In some cases, aligning your smile with orthodontics is the way to go.
