Well, there are plenty of commercial 3D modelling tools with 'smooth'
functions that would add more triangles - but they can't add
information that wasn't already there. All they can do is to filter
the information you've got - so they might round off corners that you
intended to be sharp at the same time as they smooth off corners caused
by not having enough triangles to start with.
