Why do my teeth look small or short?

You might notice that your teeth look shortened or small compared to when you were younger. If this is the case for you, we welcome you to get in touch with GoldCity Dental Centre for an evaluation. Often, small-looking teeth indicate chronic teeth grinding and uneven wear caused by a misaligned bite.

Fortunately, we offer solutions to help you regain your smile and eliminate any discomfort or sensitivity associated with teeth wear.

Dental crowns – ceramic dental crowns can rebuild the teeth and restore the bite
Veneers – dental veneers restore the length, shape and colour of teeth
Invisalign – provides a bracket-free alternative to traditional orthodontics
Nightguard – most patients with a chronic teeth grinding habit can benefit from a bruxism splint, also called a nightguard

Other signs that you grind your teeth can include bite marks along the inside of the cheeks and bony growths under the tongue, called tori. You might also feel achy facial muscles or have headaches in the morning. Teeth grinding also often makes teeth feel sensitive and causes gum recession.

If any of these symptoms impact your life or smile, contact GoldCity Dental Centre to arrange an appointment. We can help.
