Have you submitted a sitemap through google web master tools?
If you have, you can reload the sitemap to update it. That might help.

If you go into Google Webmaster tools and click on Fetch as Googlebot you can enter the address of a page which Google will fetch and add to it's index. How long it then takes for that page to be added so that the change happens is beyond anyone's control.
