You don't want to overtighten since you could crack the porcelain. Are your rubber washers in good shape? This will help. You should be able to do this w/out doing any damage.

There should be a way to tighten the bolts without going that far Here's two things:
Look at the lid, with the seat down. The bolts are sometimes covered with a snap-in palstic cap or flap. If so, pry up with a screwdriver. Then use a screwdriver and wrench to tighten.
If the bolts appear to be cast as a part of the hinge assembly, you should be able to reach around the seat to the back side (no pun intended) of the toilet, and tighten with a wrench.
I sometimes use a 'mirror trick' to get a better idea of what's back there. Just use a small mirror and hold it to where you can see the bolt and not on the back.
Hope this gets you going (oops, another unintentional pun).
Best regards, --W/D-- please feel free to rate this solution..thanx!

SOURCE: loose Toto toilet seat
Lift up plastic caps located on ends of hindge behind seat. use flat screw driver and hold the nut under the outside toilet rim with your fingers or a pair of pliers. Do not over tighten or might crack the bowl.

well there should be 2 hinges rite behind seat. you wont see the screws cause they are under a plastic cover. take a flat head screw driver and pry up cover. lil cover should lift up towards tank. then you should see screws. the nut is under bowl you have to bend down then look up to see them or do what i do and feel for them. take big flat head or big philips screw driver and while you hold nut titen screw. hope this helps. duane:)
