Is a condensed font that complements your text face available? That, and 
reducing the font size should be the first things to look at.
If neither will work for you, there is a sledge-hammer you can wield: 
\kerncharacters. Depending on the font and your sensibilities, you might 
get away with \kerncharacters[-0.07], but even at -0.03 some look bad. 
You will lose ligatures.
