Sometimes, lengthening your teeth can be all it takes to get a spectacular smile.
Since it’s all about proportion, you can’t overlook your gums. Genetics may be to blame, or even improper hygiene when braces were worn. Cosmetic gum procedures can be done in a single appointment. They’re generally painless, and teeth will appear longer when the gums heal.
On the flip side, teeth that appear too short may be the result of wear on the bottom edges of the teeth, so altering your bite is another way to make teeth look longer. Your dentist restores your back teeth in a more open position, creating space in the front so these teeth can be lengthened via bonding, porcelain veneers, or crowns.
If you select this approach, you must wear a temporary restoration for at least three months to make sure you don’t have TMJ problems.
