Can I make my front teeth look less prominent? (photos)

#Ortho or #Veneers to correct prominent front teeth #DrSoftTouch
Thank you for posting your photos. You upper arch is very narrow compared to your lower arch, and your front teeth appear more prominent because you are missing your lateral incisors. I would give you two options to correct your smile, but I can tell you that I've used porcelain veneers alone to fix the smiles of patients similar to yours.
The first option would be orthodontics. This option would require no tooth preparation but could take several years to complete. A space would be created on either side of your two front teeth to make room for either implants or bridges to replace your missing lateral incisors.
The second option would be skipping orthodontics all together and would include porcelain veneers and crowns across the top. Your issues would be corrected and the look your are trying to achieve would likely occur in a single appointment with a cosmetic dentist.
I would recommend doing a little research on line and finding a dentist with great before and after photos. This will give you a pretty good indication of what you can expect from the dentist that you select. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
