I am very self conscious about the shape and structure of my teeth.

Could people please say what they think about them. Are they noticeably crooked, yellow...?

Also, if you're brave, post pictures of your teeth too!! :P


P.S: Sorry for poor quality pics and I'm male.

Your teeth are 'straight' by NHS standards so are perfectly fine

Your teeth look fine to me.

White and straight. And provided they can chew food, what more do you want?

they're a great set of teeth, I actually prefer it when people have more natural teeth than false hollywood ones because I think it gives more of a personality and charm about someone

I too am very self-conscious about my teeth.. I literally stare in the mirror for ages sometimes just looking at them and I obsess over whether they have got even more crooked or have chipped when I've eaten. But I have tried to teach myself that teeth are just teeth and unless they are horrendous looking, no one will really notice them. And like others said, I think by normal standards they are actually fine. We both just need to get some self-confidence in our teeth I guess :yep:

They're okay - mine are literally horrible and I hate them. I guess it's more about how you feel about them than what other people think. I have a consultation for Invisalign next week which I am literally SO excited about. I'd smile about it more but then people would see my teeth!

They're quite and healthy, but you have a Class II Division II malocclusion. You'd really benefit from the Damon orthodontic system, which would straighten your teeth with no extractions, and give you a broad, wide smile, filling out the dark triangles in the corner of your mouth, expanding your palate by restoring the balance of your cheek and tongue muscles. Traditional braces and extractions would not be a good option.

IOTN-wise (Indicator of Treatment Need) you would be in category three, which is described as "for greater irregularities of the teeth which normally do not need treatment for health reasons." Category 1 is for "almost perfection" and category 5 is for very severe irregularities of the teeth.

In the aesthetic component, I would rate you as a 5 out of 10 (with 1 being the most attractive teeth and 10 being the least attractive).

Don't worry about your teeth: they look healthy and white, and are pretty much average in terms of alignment. If you do seek orthodontic treatment, avoid extractions - they have very undesirable facial consequences in about 40-60% of patients.

Just a warning: Invisalign will not straighten your teeth in the same way as fixed braces do. I always say that Invisalign makes your teeth look "not crooked" but doesn't give that "wow" smile that you get with a fixed system. This is because Invisalign only straightens the anterior teeth (front teeth) rather than the whole arch. If you're wanting something inconspicuous, a fixed system such as Damon Clear (see above link) would deliver a far better smile at the end.

Hi guys,

Would it be worth correcting them purely for aesthetic reasoning? I'm 19 and in education and don't have a lot of money only earning £200 a month and I gather that I cannot get my teeth done for free.

When I was 15 I asked for them to be straightened but was told that they only can be straightened for free if they were to cause medical issues - so what doi do?

They're giving me a low self esteem and I'm also worried that the ladies will be judging
!!

Hope for further responses soon!!
Thanks
