Hello, i have one front tooth longer than the other
Q. Hello, i have one front tooth longer than the other and was advised if got a brace it would drop back down again in time, i was advised that i could get a slice of the longer tooth so my two front teeth would be level and my dentist would build it up with veneer, do you think would this cause sensitivity or discolouring in time? Any advice greatfully received Thank you.
A. I would have the brace option. The tooth will not move down again if you have permanent retention on the back of the tooth to hold it in place. If you are not keen on having braces then a veneer is definately an option. You will have to have some tooth shaved down and the preparation should be kept within enamel. There shouldn’t be sensitivity if this is the case and you normally wouldn’t get any staining
