Do you have one or more teeth that seem ridiculously tiny?
If so, you may be embarrassed to show off your teeth when you smile or laugh.
Fortunately, there are some great cosmetic dentistry treatments for making your teeth look larger to even out your smile.
Crowns provide the most comprehensive coverage for teeth. They’re solid and cover the entire tooth to provide structural support. A crown is ideal if your tooth is small because of a large fracture or a congenital defect.
For a minimal approach to enlarging teeth, try dental bonding. To bond a tooth means filling out its profile with a tooth-colored restorative putty. Bonding patches up shallow chips in enamel and can also round out the shape of a narrow-looking tooth.
One of the best solutions for making teeth look bigger is to get a dental veneer. A veneer is a wafer of porcelain that fits over the front of a healthy tooth. The porcelain can be shaped larger than the actual tooth, so that when it goes over the front, the entire tooth looks wider or longer than before.
Veneers are permanent yet less-invasive than crowns. They can also provide a more natural finish than dental bonding.
