GET EVALUATED: You may either have short teeth, a collapsed bite or a low lip line. See a cosmetic dentist who has training in facial aesthetics and dental occlusion. There may be many facets to giving you what you want.

Need Consultation: A dentist can see what you problem is and assist you in methods to solve the problem. There are many options to consider, however it needs to be matched with your specific concerns.

Evaluation : I concurr w dr mcfarlane, see a general dentist with a strong cosmetic restorative background. I would also suggest consultation w a prosthodontist and an orthodontist. The best solution for you may be to 1st put teeth where they belong, then have them re shaped and re colored to look their best. This requires multidisciplinary rx. Beware of the mega dentist who does everything.
