My canine teeth are too pointy! What can be done?

Canines are unlike any other teeth in the mouth.
Every other tooth in the mouth is, almost, a copy of a another
tooth in the same corner of the mouth.
You have 2 incisors, 2 pre-molars, and 2 molars per quadrant but only 1 canine.
These teeth are also, typically, the longest rooted teeth in the mouth.

One problem that people have with their canines is that sometimes
they feel as if they are a bit too pointed.

They hide them when they smile for fear that they look too much like a vampire.

Well there has never been an easier fix for just about anything.

All you need to do is file those bad boys down just a bit.
You do not need to be numbed up and it will only take a moment to do.
You will have less enamel so the chances that you could get decay in the
future are slightly higher. But, with a little added attention to your home
care that should never end up being a problem.

  1. There are different options to fix excessively pointy canine teeth. One of which is Enamelplasty. It reduces the sharpness of your canine teeth and shapes these to have a rather rounded appearance. You can also try veneers or bonding, Jim. It depends on you.
