Pegged Back By Peg Laterals: 3 Dental Treatments for Undersized Lateral Incisors
When the lateral incisors, which are the teeth on either side of your central incisors, appear much smaller than the central incisors, they are referred to as "peg laterals". In general, peg laterals occur in the upper (maxillary) jaw and are cone-shaped. Because of their size and their position in the smile zone, they are easily noticeable when a person with this condition smiles. Fortunately, there are a range of cosmetic dentistry techniques that can address this issue.
