One option..: Veneers are one option in the attempt to mask a canine that is protruding. Another option is invisalign. Since this type of cosmetic work is case specific, it would be best to find a trusted dentist in your area who is comfortable tackling cosmetic cases such as yours. Have them explain the pros and cons of each treatment option.

Changing the shape: Veneers can be used to reshape a tooth to make it look more esthetic so the snaggle tooth can be corrected to look better
