When I smile, some of my upper teeth are hidden by my top lip. (My orthodontist said this was because I have a shorter-than-average jaw bone?) To add to that, my teeth are very small and narrow. So whenever I smile, it looks fake. I recently had braces taken off to straighten my teeth and close gaps. But I still feel self-conscious about my smile.
Your teeth are tipped in, and from what I gather, you do not like the shape the color of your teeth, and you want a fuller smile!
Your upper arch is narrow, showing black space between your teeth and cheeks!
Your options to improve your smile are:
Have a complete dental check-up before you do any cosmetic dentistry regarding your teeth and gums health. And bite(occlusion); from what I gather, you have completed your teeth movement with the orthodontist, although I believe much more could have been done ( I do not have your records), so maybe that is all the teeth movement the dentist could have done for you….. if so:
Start by finding the best cosmetic dentist to have:
1-Teeth Whitening and bleaching of your teeth, done first to brighten the color of your teeth to see how you like them. The whiter your teeth, the bigger they will look, and you will get some cosmetic improvement. However, the result is not permanent, and you might need other teeth bleaching done down the line. This is the first step to having a bit whiter teeth, and you and the dentist can evaluate for further cosmetic dentistry procedures.

2- Have dental bonding done to close the small gaps; the beauty of this procedure is that it is not invasive, and very little tooth structure is removed from your teeth; the drawback of dental bonding with dental composites is that they are not strong so that it can chip, and unfortunately it can stain.

3- Porcelain veneers, For a more permanent, fantastic look, but not Hollywood white, you need a customized color, so they are pearly white, polychromatic, and natural white dental veneers. That is why a consultation with an expert cosmetic dentist regarding the shape and color of your teeth is a MUST if you choose to have dental veneers done. You must consult with a specialist veneer dentist. For more information on porcelain veneers, click here.
4- Have no prep veneers or lumineers done BUT make sure you request a complete wax-up of your teeth before you get into having lumineers, inlays, or no prep veneers. Most patients are disappointed after this cosmetic dentistry procedure since a thickness of porcelain is added to their teeth, which was never there before!
