  • Dont wanna braces :(

    Hello! My teeth are "perfect" in my eyes except for that my Right front tooth is overlapping the other.It is barely overlapping but i wanna fix it so my teeth will be good.However,i cant really get braces.Does anyone have any ideas on how i could get my front tooth to be aligned with the rest without getting braces?

    Thanks

  • Your best bet is to talk to your dentist about your options. I know they have teeth straightening systems out on the market now that are NOT braces.. I think one is called Invisiline or something like that, basically a removable mouth guard molded to fit your teeth and gradually shifts the imperfections until your teeth are lined up.

    Talk to your DDS and see what's out there for you!

    • Yeah Invisiline(lign?) might be perfect for you. No one would notice them, you'd only need them on the top teeth, and you'd only use them for a relatively short while. They are expensive, though, as the only thing to consider.

      One of my friends had a similar problem to the one you described, and all she had to do was get a little rubber band thing from the dentist and fit it in between the two front teeth and wear it like that for a couple of months or so. Can't remember if it was for just at night or what.

      Definitely go consult with a dentist. And put your foot down and tell them you don't want braces. Sometimes doctors can be annoyingly insistent.

      • Veneers may work for you. Not cheap but it's what the movie stars do and they all have perfect teeth.

        • why cant you get braces?
          if you dont like the look of them then invisalign is probably the right way to go

          veneers are a bit pointless if its only one tooth overlapping a slight bit.

          • Why no braces?

            how old are you?
            Does ur insurance cover it or not?
            TRY INVISILIGN?
            I got braces two years ago and had to have more work done on my mouth than you need but i have them off now and wear invisilign like retainers .

            YAHOOOOOO!!! NOW I CAN EAT APPLES AND TAFFY!
            :cool: bye.

            • First, consult with your dentist. My brother also had a similar problem to the one you described, and all he had to do was get a little rubber band thing from the dentist and fit it in between the two front teeth and wear it like that for more than 4 months or so.
