One Front Tooth is Longer Than the Others – Can I Fix This?

Posted .

Everyone desires a healthy, beautiful looking smile. If you’ve noticed that one of your front teeth is longer than the other, you may wonder if you can resolve this and achieve the smile of your dreams. Fortunately, it is possible to change this situation and make sure your teeth are even and look great with one another.

Here at Costa Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we recommend a variety of treatments when one front tooth is longer than the other. Orthodontic treatment is often the solution, especially when one tooth looks longer than the other because one tooth is tilted back or forward or grew a bit behind or ahead of the other. Braces can do wonders for your front teeth, if this is your case.

Fillings may also be an option. If the edges of your teeth are too sharp and scratch your gums and cheeks or the shape of your teeth are too triangular, fillings may be well worth it. Filling your teeth can make space to allow them to shift into their proper positions and help resolve the length difference.

Veneers are another solution to a front tooth that is longer than the other. They are made out of porcelain and look and function like your real teeth. Once you have them in your mouth, nobody will be able to tell. Veneers can visually lengthen your teeth and help you achieve a beautiful smile. With proper care, veneers can last a decade or longer.
