The two teeth next to my front teeth are tiny and pushed back. My front two teeth slightly face towards each other. I have composite resin/bonding to fix this (less $ than veneers) but do I need gum contouring? I want my teeth to all be similar and have an even gum line.
I would not call it crooked by any means, and you can improve and enhance your existing smile to a million-dollar smile. Here are some suggestions:
1- since you have light skin, you can afford whiter teeth, so before having a dental procedure, see if you can do teeth bleaching; let your dentist check your teeth for any sensitivity or cracks before starting teeth whitening.
2- Your front and back teeth are tilted in. So possibly consult with an orthodontist to expand your upper and lower back teeth to decrease the uneven black buccal corridor ( this is the space between your cheeks and the back teeth, this can give you a fuller, more attractive smile. If time is an issue, or you do not want orthodontic treatment, I suggest gum contouring to reduce the gummy smile and placing porcelain veneers. Dental bonding can be done if cost is a factor, but it will not be as strong and color-permanent as dental veneers.
3- your front teeth are pushed in; it would be great if the cosmetic dentist could do porcelain veneers by bringing all your front teeth a bit out. Also, your two front teeth are dominating your smile; to distribute a more natural width ratio, then your dentist must remove thin enamel from the sides of your two dominant front teeth and add that to your tiny (lateral) teeth so that they will look more harmonious, and better ratios.
Again depending on your budget, you can discuss porcelain veneers vs. dental bonding with your cosmetic dentist. THIN Veneers will be a more permanent stronger solution than dental bonding due to strength and color stability, hence less possibility of chipping and controlling your diet for colored foods or drinks.
