Braces, what next..

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: aminaissa  (7 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

The attached are my before and after pictures

You are very confused. Veneers are cemented on the front of teeth. If you have teeth extracted, you cannot have veneers. You are thinking perhaps of implants and implant crowns?

You had orthodontics, and still do not think you have the "perfect smile?" Then don't let him take the braces off.

You might want to think real hard about getting your front teeth out - the goal is to improve your smile, not lose your natural teeth! :O But anyway, it would be good to really communicate your expectations to your dentist, so that you can both come up with a treatment plan that will give you the perfect smile you want. You can also get free professional advice on the This is Dentistry website, using the Ask a Dentist tab, if you want to have a second opinion about your concern...
