COSMETIC PROBLEMS

My Teeth Are the Wrong Shape or Size

Are you bothered by the size or shape of your teeth?

Are some of your teeth irregularly large or small? Are they too pointy or square? When teeth turn out an irregular shape or size, it is often due to genetics. Unusually small front upper teeth, unusually pointy teeth or extra wide teeth can all be congenital abnormalities. However, having naturally irregular teeth does not mean they have to stay that way.

From Irregular to Irresistible

If your teeth have odd sizes or shapes, modern dentistry has a wide variety of tools to help you transform your smile. When teeth appear too small, it’s important to first evaluate if the teeth themselves are truly too small, if the gums are too large or if the teeth have been worn down.( For more information about gummy smiles, click here.) Congenitally small teeth can be transformed using crowns or veneers, as can oddly shaped teeth like pointy front teeth. Successfully changing the size of teeth sometimes requires orthodontics prior to cosmetic dentistry in order to create space if the teeth are too close together at the start of treatment.

Transformation That’s Greater Than Face Value

The first benefit of transforming irregularly sized or shaped teeth is obviously the cosmetic value and confidence boost that having a beautiful, balanced smile brings. However, there are health benefits to smile about beyond just having a great smile. Whenever teeth are mismatched in size and shape, chewing forces can’t be distributed evenly across the teeth. What that means is that some teeth receive much more pounding chewing force than others. These poor teeth wear out faster and are prone to cracking, bone loss and toothaches. Having mismatched or irregularly shaped or sized teeth re-made is an opportunity to rebalance the bite and protect all of your teeth as well as your bone and your jaw.

Here at Alamo Dental Health, when we transform a smile, we include a detailed bite analysis of both the current and the planned smile before we ever touch a tooth. This step is critical to producing a lasting transformation and safeguarding your new smile, your bone and your jaw. As a patient, you can protect yourself and your investment by making sure that any large smile transformation includes bite analysis in the planning phase. Without it, you’ll only find out too late that your new smile was built on a faulty foundation.

Knowledgeable and Nice People

I’d like to recommend Dr. John Bec and his entire staff for one of the best patient experiences that I’ve ever had. I was in for an emergency with an acute pain on my teeth and they treated me immediately. I was also impressed with the systematization of their processes, which I’m sure, contributed to the excellent service. 2 thumbs up for these knowledgeable and nice people!
