My front two teeth are big like than rest pf the tooth it makes me look fat and like bunny?

My front two teeth are big like than rest pf the tooth it makes me look fat and like bunny?

SEE A DENTIST.: The bunny look is associated with lack of space for these teeth, so they came forward (protruded).
The ideal thing would be to consult an orthodontist to bring teeth to the right position (braces). Or these teeth may be "re-shaped" cosmetically
or ground down (not recommended) placing two new prosthetic crowns. ...Read more

Allergic to rabbit? I just got a bunny and shortly after I broke out in hives. I have no breathing problems and my hands and face are not effected. I have never had a problem with rabbits before, but could it be the bunnie? And do I need to go see a docto

Probable: As many other things can cause hives, this may well be a true allergic reaction to the rabbit or just coincidental. If the problem continues for over 6 weeks or gets more severe despite taking antihistamine, consult an allergist.
If you have hives only when exposed to the rabbit, you should get rid of it. ...Read more
