What's my option to fix my teeth?

Hello!

I have a gap between my two upper front teeth. I also have an overbite. Braces are quite expensive and I really can't afford them this time. I want to fix my teeth really bad. What are my other options? I would be really grateful for any suggestions you can give me.

Hi Dispain!

You can opt for cosmetic procedures. They can add on to the two front teeth to fill in the gap. Visit a cosmetic dentist for your other possible options.

Hi:-)

You can have the gap filled with bonding. They can place an artificial enamel, the one that looks like part of your teeth, at the gap.

For the overbite, I know this sounds strange but many patients would use overbite in the wrong place so did you mean:
== upper teeth covering lower teeth (overbite)
please note in ideal occlusion a normal overbite should be upper front teeth covering two thirds of lower front teeth.
== The horizontal distance between upper front teeth and lower front teeth is called (overjet)
again, in ideal occlusion the overjet is around 3-4 mm
Orthodontic treatment (braces) would be able to correct both, however alternative treatment options will depend which one do you have.
A gap could be closed with white fillings (fillings that match the shade of your teeth). Other treatment options include:
crowns and veneers
Your dentist should be able to give more info regarding your teeth as he/she is able to examine them.
hope that helps,

Hi
I have seen such a men and women. the gap between the teeth is sometimes it is taken as the golden future but we don't feel easy to bear such a problem you can fill the extra teeth in the gap taking the help of the doctor.

Hi Manchy, my front teeth cover my lower teeth excessively. I'll definitely visit the dentist soon. Thanks for the useful information!:-)
