I have a front tooth that is about ¼” smaller in width and height than the one next to it, so it is very noticeable. When I talk to some people I see their eyes drifting to my teeth trying to figure out what’s going on with them. I keep smiling because I am a happy person but the look of my tooth really bothers me. I am wondering if I could get this tooth pulled and replaced with a dental implant. – Rhonda
Rhonda – Your tooth can be restored and matched to fix the size, color, and shape of your other teeth, and a dental implant is probably not necessary. If the smaller tooth is in good shape, it can be concealed with a porcelain crown or a porcelain veneer.
Porcelain can be manipulated to match the characteristics and translucency of your natural teeth. It’s very durable and the crown or veneer will last for many years.
A skilled cosmetic dentist will let you know your options. If for some reason a dental implant is required, a cosmetic dentist will perfect match the implant crown to your natural teeth.
