Charlotte just took a yogie from me (which she NEVER does....I think she is FINALLY s tarting to warm up to me.) and I noticed that her teeth are very, very short. Like, just kind of barely visible. When I took her to the vet a month or so ago, she was just fine....I think it's just something I never noticed.

Is this a problem? She eats just fine...

have you checked how long they are after you pull lips back? her lips could just be covering up the majority of her teeth. there's stuff you can feed to encourage dental growth, but if she's eating fine i wouldn't worry about it. maybe try softer foods and take out stuff to chew on for a little bit?

I've never heard of short teeth before, only teeth that are misaligned or too long!

Like OnlyOno says, perhaps they were covered by her lips? A good time to get a real good look at them is when she yawns. You could try waking her gently when she's been sleeping for a while... you should get a good stretch and yawn, then.
