One of my front teeth is shorter than the other. How to fix?

One needs to ask themselves, why or how did that happen? If one arm was longer than the other, most often that would be a developmental defect. But in teeth, often it is a result of wear function. This would mean lengthening or shortening may not solve or even last any significant amount of time due to inadequate space or function and grinding.

If you are looking into dental implants, either you are already missing teeth or are aware that you will be losing teeth in the near future. In the latter case, it is very important to plan for the future when extracting teeth. How you handle the extraction (with or without bone grafting) and even possible immediate replacement with an implant will greatly impact the possibility and success of the implant. In replacing already missing teeth, taking into consideration the remaining teeth in your treatment plan greatly impacts the scope of treatment. Aside from all this, generally, earlier and sooner is better than later. Your health may change and complicate the consideration of implants.

Perhaps going from full-time active braces to retention only at night time was too abrupt. After active movement of teeth, the teeth are still mobile and will have a tendency to relapse to their earlier position. Therefore, the retention period is not only to hold them where you want them, but also to signal to the bones to firm up their position. Wearing them only at night right after finishing braces may allow them to shift in the daytime. Also, perhaps the type of retainer allows for some movement and you may not be ready for it yet until they have firmed up. Consult with your doctor.
