    Default What to do about one small tooth.....

    I had braces so my teeth are all straight but one of them is smaller than the others because prior to getting braces that tooth was tucked behind my front one and because i had a bottom tooth that was really out of place, that bottom tooth wore down the small tooth, and even though it brought it into line with my other teeth with the brace, braces dont make teeth bigger, so its still small. My ortho was like 'the dentist can make it the same size' but she didn't say what he'd do, so what does it sound like? Veneer? cap? Thanks for the help.

    I think a cap-it will be much as if you'd had a root canal, they just file the little tooth into more of a point & slip a crown down over it. I have 2 and there is no way you can tell they arn't mine-they are very careful to match color,etc. You will love it!

    Thanks for the help! I'm glad you cant tell because at the moment i'm driving myself crazy with thoughts that it will be obvious.

    I would let it be. I still have a baby tooth and I don't mind (the adult tooth is stuck in my jaw bone and will never come out). It's a canine too, no one notices though unless I point it out to them.
