Why Are my Two Front Teeth Still Different Sizes After Filing to Correct This Issue? (photo)
I had my 2 front teeth filed down. The first dentist didn't file them to my satisfaction. The tooth on the right seemed longer. I went to a cosmetic dentist and had the one on the right filed again, but to my eye it STILL looks longer. Why is it so hard to get them even? I know that on the left tooth, the inner gum line is different (slanted, almost), and that doesn't help visually. But when I bite STRAIGHT down on a ruler my right tooth hits it when my left tooth doesn't. Am I being too picky?
