You have likely seen those pictures that, depending on how you look at them, you may see one image or another. For instance, the “vases faces” image in a well-known example in which two identical profiles of a human face are staring at one another just a few inches apart. Upon first glance, some see two faces, while others see a vase in the center of the picture. What does this have to do with your smile, you ask? Well, when it comes to cosmetic issues, it’s often all about your perspective. You may be right on target or you may be confusing one problem for another, explains your Corona dentist. So, before you think you have everything figured out, consider some misconceptions and, instead of guessing, see us soon to discover just what you need!
Skinny Teeth Versus Spacing
You may see “skinny” teeth when you look in the mirror. However, it’s important to ask yourself if you have any spacing between teeth, which may be the actual problem that is creating the illusion of narrow teeth. Your Corona dentist can help you with cosmetic care to create a proportionate grin.
Short Teeth Versus A Gummy Smile
Do you actually have short teeth? Or, does the fact that excess gum tissue, often referred to as having a “gummy smile,” is simply revealing too little of your dental tissue? Before you assume you need longer teeth, remember that speaking with your Corona dentist about cosmetic treatment for your gum tissue may be what you need!
Long Teeth Versus Gum Recession
Do your teeth suddenly look long? You may have beautifully shaped teeth but your gums have begun to recede. This is often due to aggressive brushing or gum disease, explains your Corona dentist. See us soon to determine what’s going on and how we can help.
