No to Vampire Teeth with Orthodontics

March 6, 2013


Vampires may be the new darlings of the media, but I bet you wouldn’t want to have fanged teeth. These “fangs,” which in reality are cuspids, take on a sharp and jagged appearance due to lack of space or crowding. Most people call them “eye teeth” or “fang teeth.”

You need your cuspids because they help you with most of your chewing functions like tearing and piercing, which makes it easier for your body to digest food. Fang teeth may be embarrassing too look at, but we have options available to help you correct it. With the help of advanced cosmetic dentistry and orthodontics, we can give you a straight and perfect smile.

Before we start suggestion options for correction, you have to tell us what prompted you to go for cosmetic dental treatment. Are you having trouble eating or chewing? Do you dislike the way your teeth look? Telling us what you don’t like about your smile may help us in creating a customized dental plan to aid your treatment.

Depending on its severity, we can choose from several options to treat your fang teeth. Most dentists would recommend orthodontic procedures such as braces or Invisalign for mild cases. Fang teeth growing above your natural arch, however, might require tooth extraction, laser reshaping, bonding and sculpting, and even dental surgery.

We have an extensive range of procedures available to help enhance your smile. With our skilled dental professionals and state of the art equipment, you may straighten and reshape your crooked canine teeth without additional health risks.

Do you want to get rid of your fangs today? Call us at 888 722 5033 to book an appointment. You can also click here to go to our before-and-after gallery of corrected fang teeth. We look forward to hearing from you!
