When your teeth look too long, it’s not something that makes you feel overly excited to share your smile with the world. Instead, you might feel the urge to try to cover your smile up while you speak, eat, laugh, etc. This can seem like it will work for a while but hiding this very prominent feature will end up causing frustration and may even cause you to avoid certain social situations. Rather than let teeth that look too long dash your confidence, why not talk with us about how cosmetic care can fix the issue? You may be surprised by your options.
Dental Contouring May Be The Fix
When your teeth look like they’re too long but they are flush next to one another, an easy approach might be to turn to cosmetic care. As long as you have a sufficient amount of enamel for us to work with, you will be just fine! We will carefully remove some of the length of each tooth, so you can look in the mirror and feel good about the dimensions of your smile.
You Might Actually Require Gum Recontouring!
It’s entirely possible that you think you have long teeth but that you are actually dealing with receding gum tissue. This is what we say when we are referring to gum tissue that has pulled back and is revealing an excessive amount of dental tissue. Sometimes your gumline is simply naturally this way. In other cases, it’s the result of gum disease or aggressive care. Fortunately, we offer gum recontouring to address the concern.
