    The teeth on the left are my teeth.

    Basically a few years ago when i was younger I fell off my bike and chipped my front tooth as you can see, I got a crown but it seems to have come off. The tooth that is chipped looks crooked too so I'd like the bottom smoothed out, the tooth straightened and then I'd like both front teeth filed back so that they line up with the other teeth as I think they appear to be too long.

    I also have overbite as I used to suck my thumb as a child, I need my upper jaw pushed back.

    As with the photo on the right, you can see that his smile is wider than mine whereas my teeth look as though they're in the middle of my mouth. How can this be fixed?

    How long do you think it will be before I can have teeth like how?

    I think it is not an easy problem which anyone can talk one or two things to solve it. Probably you should ask professional dentist. Haha, maybe some of dentists

    Then see if you can. Of course your teeth will stick out if there’s nothing to slowly push them back in.

    Yes you could, braces work extremely well. Can I ask how old you are right now?

    Perfect. I am also 16 and started wearing braces at the start of this year (I was also 16 in January). (I’m an wearing braces on the inside of my teeth which would normally cost £5k but I managed to get for free at my aunt’s clinic.)

    Don’t waste time! Ask your parents about it and see when you can get braces fitted. You don’t want to still be wearing them when you go to uni, because regular checkups will be super annoying and inconvenient.

    absolutely, I just want it to be sorted quick, if only I was rich and i could afford to get invisalign lol. I'm due at the dentist next week so I really do hope I'm referred to orthodontist pretty quickly
