Braces, what next..

Posted by: aminaissa  (10 years ago)
I have been wearing braces for about two years now and my dentist says they are due to come off next month.
I had one tooth taken out before i got the braces and the dentist who did it back then wasnt too informed.

I feel like i neeed to get the perfect smile line and get rid of that tooth in the middle. I have been thinking about getting all three front teeth taken our and replaced with 4 veneers(not sure what the correct term is)

Your help will be appreaciated

Your orthodontist has been moving your teeth around for a reason. He will have had a final result in mind. Ask what the final result will be, and what else you could to improve the situation. I find it hard to believe that he would leave the teeth as they are now. I agree with you, it's not acceptable. But I wouldn't recommend getting any teeth out. Artificial replacements are never as good, nor last forever.
