You do not have short teeth. You simply have the gums covering up your teeth that have always been there. Sometimes teeth do not come into the mouth all the way. This results in the appearance of short teeth with a "gummy smile". In about an hour, it can be very comfortably fixed with a simple procedure called esthetic crown lengthening.
Sometimes aggressive brushing or flossing can cause gums to pull away from the teeth. This can result in sensitive teeth and an unattractive appearance. It is fixed with gum or soft tissue grafting.
Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. An attractive smile can be created by replacing missing teeth. It can improve self-confidence by showing a natural, beautiful smile.
