Unfortunately this doesn't always go according to plan - sometimes the teeth don't meet properly, so they grow very long, leading to the guinea pig being unable to eat properly.
Here is an example we've seen recently: in the first photo, you can see the teeth have grown up along the roof of the piggy's mouth.
Happily the guinea pig was successfully treated - we anaesthetised her, then trimmed the teeth short. She has recovered really well :)
