Peg Laterals

Peg lateral is the term used to describe lateral incisors which have developed a smaller and/or a abnormal shape to the normal lateral incisor.

It is believed to be a genetic trait and very little is known why lateral incisors develop in this unusual shape and why it is mainly lateral incisor teeth which are affected. Peg laterals can be modified by the dentist making the peg tooth/teeth more realistic to the normal dimensions.
