What Causes Narrow Smiles?

An asymmetrical smile may be caused by the uneven alignment of the teeth or jawline. Missing teeth or crooked teeth can further contribute to this by reducing the overall width of the smile. In these cases, a dentist may recommend restorative options to restore the patient’s smile.

A smile with a narrow mouth can compromise the facial structure’s overall aesthetic as it leaves the cheeks unsupported. This is sometimes referred to as a narrow buccal corridor – which prevents a wider smile and makes it look as though the front teeth are protruding. Understanding the underlying cause of narrow smiles is essential in order to develop an effective treatment plan.

How We Can Fix Or Broaden A Narrow Smile

Usually, patients who have a narrow smile will find they have narrow dental arches or misaligned teeth. A clinical evaluation is the first step to assessing the cause of your smile’s appearance and determining a treatment plan for the narrow smile.

The key to producing a wider smile is usually to straighten the teeth. In some cases, extreme and severe overcrowding can cause issues with arch development which affects your overall smile and face shape.

A skewed smile can be easily corrected with specific treatments which help to even out the distribution of teeth in your mouth. Treatments such as expanding a smile, or linking the front and back teeth together can give you the wide smile you’re looking for.

Narrow Smile Fixing Treatment

Doctor Joe Oliver is a specialist in dental veneers and has helped patients gently widen their smiles with minimally invasive treatment.

You might’ve considered fixed braces, but sometimes there is no need to seek lengthy treatment if your natural teeth are healthy and can be corrected in half the time (or even instantly) with the likes of porcelain veneers.

More invasive orthodontic treatment like tooth extraction may be necessary if your smile is affected by overcrowding. Having fewer teeth can alleviate discomfort and can create room for your teeth to move.

How can porcelain veneers correct a narrow smile?

Not only can veneers give you a brighter smile, but they can also help to fix the appearance of missing teeth and create the illusion of a broader arch. This can push out the inner cheeks without the need for traditional braces.

Natural-looking porcelain not only leaves you with a whiter smile but can also reverse the aged appearance that often comes as a result of having a narrow smile. One of Doctor Oliver’s most successful treatments is the smile makeover, which is designed to leave you with the perfect smile.

Widen narrow arches

Wide smiles appear more symmetrical and therefore correcting a narrow archway is usually the solution to improving imperfect smiles.

This doesn’t always require invasive treatment though; as long as your narrow arch is not causing discomfort, or excess overcrowding won’t result in eventual tooth loss, dental veneers or composite bonding can be used to fix narrow smiles.
