    The meaning of "capped teeth and jagged teeth"

    Hi again
    Could you kindly help me and say if I'm right or not?
    I wanted to find the proper word for those kind of teeth that are not even and straight. I came across this word (jagged teeth). Is it suitable for the one I wanted?

    And also about capped tooth, I came across this word in a collocation dictionary. Does it refer to the tooth that's not natural. I mean the one that's made by an expert and then is placed on the bad tooth that has already been scraped in half by the dentist?
    Thanks

    "Uneven teeth" would work, unless you want to emphasize that they look sharp.

    And also about capped tooth, I came across this word in a collocation dictionary. Does it refer to the tooth that's not natural. I mean the one that's made by an expert and then is placed on the bad tooth that has already been scraped in half by the dentist?

    Yes, a capped tooth has had a 'crown' (dental crown) placed on it.
