I got my 2 top teeth pulled out, because my dentist said I didn't have space. My teeth no longer show when I smile?

How to Reverse Bicuspid Extraction Orthodontics
The only way to fix not being able to see your teeth when you smile is to reverse the effects of the bicuspid extraction orthodontics. This is done by expanding the dental arch that was underdeveloped from the start (that is why the canine or "fang" teeth didn't fit into the arch). Now that the bicuspids were extracted the dental arch collapsed even further when the spaces from the bicuspid extractions were closed.
Developing the dental arch is done using a removable appliance.
