I am 25 years old, as a kid and in my teen years I didn't look after my teeth as much as I should have, however over the past 2 years I have cut out pop drinks by around 90 % and I make sure I always brush my teeth every morning and night followed by using mouthwash.
I am insecure about my teeth and I try and avoid going places like KFC, Mcdonalds e.t.c. when I am alone because I feel they might think things about my teeth.

do you think I need braces or other dental work, am I too old for brace at 25 ??

I think my lateral incisor teeth need to be wider, would bonding be needed for that ?
thanks

You aren't too old, and in todays day theres loads of things like invisalign and 6 month smile. Some dentists also fill the gaps of the teeth, if youre in London, PM and I can give details. Braces are an investment and youve still gotta take a lot of care with them.

As for teeth, Ive seen worse.

I think you would benefit from braces, I too had gappy teeth and now mine are straight. I suggest booking an appointment with an orthodontics for an initial consultation, where you can discuss your issues.

thanks, when you say fill the gaps of the teeth do you mean like bonding ? I want my lateral incisors to be wider, would bonding do that ?

Yes, you would benefit from braces. Your teeth would be perfect if you wore them, but then again I wouldn't say they're that bad atm so it's not a necessity, mine used to be worse when I started wearing braces.

You are not too old for braces.

The problem is that the NHS will not fund braces for you because of your age.

I know that sucks but if your teeth impact your health etc then the NHS may consider funding braces free for you.

I am not sure. What impact do you think your teeth are causing your health?

You would usually have to see your dentist who will refer you to an orthodontist. The orthodontist will then assess your situation and tell you whether you will qualify for free NHS dental braces based on a score out of 5.

If he/she gives you a score of 4/5 then it usually means that your teeth are impacting your health.

This is not impacting your health.

Its not like it causes your teeth to get weaker or it damages your gums.

You have a self-esteem problem which is not justified to qualify for free NHS dental braces unfortunately.

I know it sucks but it is still worth it to see a dentist who will refer you to an orthodontist who will advise you better than anyone on TSR.

What does your dentist say about your teeth? Firstly you should be examined by your dentist and only then to solve your problem.
