How to address short teeth

iStock 134442354 There’s no better way to exude confidence than with a white, bright, and healthy smile! Unfortunately, not everyone naturally has a smile that can light up a room. In fact, many patients who visit Gallery 57 Dental in New York, NY may be interested in enhancing their smile’s appearance, especially if they have short teeth near the front of the smile that detracts from the perfect grin. The dentists at Gallery 57 Dental have options available to patients to consider for improving their look. 

What can be done for short teeth? 

Cosmetic dentistry allows a dentist to improve a patient’s smile with certain restorations and techniques. With the help of our team at Gallery 57 Dental, New York area patients can learn about the options available to them. Below are just a few of the ways in which short teeth are improved for patients: 

  • Gum tissue removal. For patients who have short teeth, it may be due to excess gum tissue that results in a “gummy” smile. This is fixed by removing excess gum tissue which in turn lengthens the teeth in these areas to a more balanced look.
  • Porcelain veneers. Many patients use porcelain veneers near the front of the smile to cover imperfections such as gaps, chips, cracked, and permanent staining. Short teeth can be lengthened by placing a veneer in front.
  • Composite resin bonding. Instead of costly veneers, some patients opt for composite resin bonding. This “dental bonding” is used to restore the appearance of the smile. This is an affordable option that offers same-day results. However, this material is not stain-resistant and may need to be replaced every few years.
  • Porcelain crowns. Another way to address an imperfect tooth is with the use of porcelain crowns, which cover all exposed areas of a tooth with a “cap.”
