Undersized Teeth Case Study: A No-Prep Smile Makeover
Many patients feel their teeth look too small and wonder “What can I do about my undersized teeth?” A smile makeover for small teeth is easier than you may think. At Charlotte Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Patrick J. Broome, an expert cosmetic dentist, can help craft a new smile with more balance and symmetry, closing gaps between teeth and improving undersized teeth. The result is a total smile makeover you will be proud to show off to your friends and family.
In this case study, we will detail our patient’s Charlotte smile makeover journey. She was unhappy with her smile and felt that her undersized teeth hindered her self-confidence. Our goal was to improve her smile with the no-prep porcelain veneer technique. We fixed her undersized teeth (known as “peg laterals”) with beautiful, razor-thin Porcelain Veneers and laser gum sculpting.
No-Prep Porcelain Veneers in Charlotte
This patient’s smile makeover involved no preparation of her natural tooth structure: no filing, shaving or removal of her existing tooth material at all. Her teeth’s small size allowed Dr. Broome to simply fill in the missing tooth volume with beautiful no-prep porcelain restorations. No-prep porcelain veneers are bonded to the front of your teeth and are placed more quickly than traditional veneers because anesthesia is not needed.
What are Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain veneers are thin, custom-made shells that fit directly over your original teeth. The premium porcelain looks natural, is stain-resistant, and blends perfectly with your surrounding teeth. Porcelain veneers are affixed to your teeth with a cement-like paste and can last 10-20 years with proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups.
As you can see, porcelain veneers look completely natural. No one will be able to tell that you have had a smile makeover! Porcelain veneers are also commonly used to fix teeth marred by chips, staining, and discoloration.

Laser Dentistry and Gum Sculpting
Our case study patient also opted for laser gum sculpting, which gave her a more natural appearance. Laser gum sculpting for a gummy smile will help contour and reshape your gums.
If you fear pain and the sound of drilling at the dentist’s office, you’re not alone. Fear not: the laser gum sculpting procedure generally does not hurt or cause bleeding due to the way Dr. Broome works his magic. We will apply a special topical anesthetic for the gum tissue, then use our state-of-the-art laser dentistry system (the cutting edge BIOLASE Waterlase iPlus system). Most patients, even children, do not even need a local anesthetic to enjoy a pain-free laser dentistry procedure.
Dr. Broome is a recognized expert on the BIOLASE Waterlase system and regularly instructs seminars for fellow dental professionals seeking to learn how to use the Waterlase.
