FAQ:  Teeth Resizing

I have very small teeth. When I smile my gums take up most of my smile.

Is there any way that my teeth can be bigger without using porcelain veneers? Are there any ways to uncover them? ... Visitor from Canada

Yes, teeth can be made to appear larger by recontouring or reshaping the gum tissues.

This can be done with a laser or other gingival surgery instruments. While there may be some controversy over which instruments produce the best results, the degree of cosmetic perfection is more related to the dentist's experience, talent and creativity.

Be sure to get more than one consult and ask for pictures of similar treatment. Avoid dentists who have no pictures.
