Cosmetic Dentistry for Small Teeth

Woman in Dentist Chair Marietta GA

When considering the perfect smile, it is not enough to have a full set of healthy, white teeth. An attractive smile also relies on a specific proportion and balance in the size of your teeth. If you have one or more teeth that are especially small in size, it can be a significant threat to your overall appearance.

In most cases, you can blame your parents for your small teeth. The size and shape of teeth are largely dependent on genetics, just like your eye color, hair color or height. Unfortunately, small teeth are rarely desirable, as they can make you look much older than you really are or in some cases, you can look more childlike. Regardless of why your teeth are small, there are cosmetic dentistry solutions that can fix it. In fact, you have more than one option when it comes to making a tooth look bigger.

What Are the Treatment Options for Small Teeth?

Addressing your small tooth or teeth starts with a simple oral exam from a cosmetic dentist. Depending on your preferences, smile goals, budget and the underlying reason for your small teeth, you may choose one of the following cosmetic treatment options:

Porcelain Veneers – By placing wafer-thin shells of porcelain on the front surface of your small tooth, we can cover up a multitude of imperfections, such as a tooth that is too small, chipped, discolored or gapped. Veneers are the preferred choice to create the smile you have always dreamed of.

Cosmetic Dental Crowns – Depending on where the small tooth is located in your mouth and how strong it is, it may be most appropriate to place a dental crown on the tooth. This is a tooth-shaped cap that fits over all sides of your natural tooth. It can be used to make a tooth look larger while also boosting its strength at the same time.

Dental Bonding – If you have a tooth that is only slightly shorter than the rest, it may be possible to simply build the tooth up and elongate it using composite resin bonding. This is a quick, painless and affordable option.

Gum Reshaping – In some cases, teeth that appear too small because there is excess gum tissue present. Therefore, by reshaping the gums or removing a small portion of the bulky tissues, it reveals that your teeth as their true, proportionate size.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
