Peg laterals – What are they?
This condition is when upper lateral incisors (next to the upper front teeth) appear visibly small. They are also pointed in appearance. Peg teeth can be as a result of poor dental hygiene. This is a developmental anomaly and can be resolved in many ways. If you feel you are suffering from peg-shaped teeth, it is important to visit your dentist quickly. They will be able to provide a solution to peg teeth that works with your budget.
What are the treatment options?
When visiting your dentist for a peg teeth treatment, you are likely to be given the following options:
- Do nothing – This is a cosmetic issue.
- Crown/Veneers – A more traditional and expensive approach to resolving peg shaped teeth.
- Aesthetic bonding using conventional techniques. This is a painless procedure in which the peg lateral teeth are built up. This is conducted by a skilled practitioner freehand.
- Bioclear matrix technique – This is aesthetic bonding using injection moulding of composite resin. Similar to the option above but a more contemporary technique. This allows us to produce aesthetically superior, more predictable and longer-lasting. In lower teeth, this may be the only long-lasting option. See the Bioclear matrix technique below.
