Many dentists use veneers as a solution for certain forms of microdontia. Because not much tooth prep is necessary prior to placing veneers, the already small tooth does not need to be further compacted or shrunk. Porcelain, a sturdy and high-quality material, helps to make the new tooth look natural while also making the teeth more durable.
Microdontia: is a condition in which one or more teeth appear smaller than normal. Truly Generalized Microdontia – all teeth are affected and smaller than normal. Relative Generalized Microdontia – multiple, but not all teeth, are affected by microdontia. Localized Microdontia – only one tooth is abnormally small
Did you know that females usually have smaller teeth than men? Even different races of people tend to have different “average” sizes of teeth. A disorder characterized as having abnormally small teeth, microdontia can occur in adults and children.
Today, there are multiple services that can re-shape and improve upon the size of microdontia. No matter the cause or the reason, if you’re unhappy with the size or shape of your teeth, there likely is a cosmetic dentistry solution for you.
