How can I fix my crooked teeth?

User Level:
Posted by: pinkcore  (9 years ago)
Hello everyone!

I have a small mouth and my teeth don't have enough space that is why I ended up with crooked teeth. I am getting really depressed about this. The orthodontist said, I need to wear braces but before that they would have to extract some of my teeth. Is there a faster way to fix this other than braces? I was wondering if there are surgeries done to straighten teeth. Can someone help me? Thanks.

There is no surgery to get your teeth aligned. If you want to avoid braces, you can have porcelain veneers put on your teeth.

Braces would be the best way to straighten crooked teeth. They put enough pressure on your teeth to shift them into their right places. Just be patient. After the treatment, your teeth will look nice for the rest of your life.
