Protruding teeth, commonly called “buck teeth,” are positioned farther forward than the surrounding teeth. Although buck teeth can be a source of self-consciousness and embarrassment, Alberta dentist Dr. Gordon Chee can recommend numerous esthetic dentistry solutions to help you look your best.

“Buck” teeth may be due to genetic factors or crowding of the teeth. Whatever reason, the condition can lead to issues with speaking and eating, not to mention the esthetic issues that can diminish self-confidence.
