Smile Symmetry: Common Problems

Maybe you see your smile reflection in the mirror and you notice one thing in particular: It just doesn’t look symmetrical. You might know exactly why it looks this way. Or, you might feel like it’s somewhat unbalanced or lopsided but you cannot exactly put your finger on what needs to be improved to achieve a balanced finish. Fortunately, we understand your dilemma and encourage you to come see us. The good news is that we offer a variety of options through the use of cosmetic care to set your smile straight!

It Might Be Your Gums

Did you know that when you think to yourself, “My smile looks crooked,” it might actually be your gums instead of your teeth? Since we generally think of our smiles as teeth only, this is very easy to overlook. Fortunately, when it’s your gum tissue that’s lopsided, we can fix the problem with gum contouring for a uniform framework.

It Could Be Tooth Length

Then again, your tooth length may be what’s causing the problem. Not your overall tooth length. Instead, their lengths may not present a mirror image on the left and right but instead may be all over the place (or longer on one side). Cosmetic care can fix this with dental bonding and contouring (or veneers).

You May Have Crooked Teeth

Beyond the strict esthetics that we can address with minor tweaks, you may simply need your teeth to be moved! We can shift them into beautiful alignment for a symmetrical appearance with the use of MTM Clear Aligners.
