Fang tooth - what to do?

I have one of my canines that is a bit of a fang. It is longer than my other teeth and canines.

Is there any cosmetic treatment I can have for it?

Thanks,

Jon

You could have it trimmed. It won't take long and it won't cost much.

A dentist can file it down very easily and painlessly.

If the only thing wrong with the tooth is that it is a bit longer, there's absolutely no reason for braces.
