    I've recently turned 18 and I think that I may need braces. I went to the dentist a few years ago she said that my teeth are in good shape (except that they need to get cleaned...whatever). My mum insisted that I should still do them as one of my lower canine was growing at around a 30 degree angle which wasn't bad at the time. I was referred to another professional which also said that my teeth were good and didn't need braces. However, Now that I'm 18 you can pretty much see that ALL my teeth are straight except for that single tooth.

    Can I still get braces or something similar for less severe problems for free or do I have to pay for them?

    I'm still in sixth form if that help (full time education)

    If they are all pretty much straight then you will have to pay for them.

    you could get a veneer to align it with the other teeth, you will have to pay but if it is only one tooth it will cost less than braces on all your teeth.
