X's Q & A

Q&A: Will I need braces and for how long if I have an overbite and gaps between my teeth?

The Internet is great in many respects, but it would be virtually impossible to accurately diagnose your condition and develop a treatment plan without having seen you or appropriate photos of your mouth. Braces may be appropriate, but you would need to be evaluated by an appropriate orthodontist to determine whether you are a suitable candidate, and to discuss the proper type of braces and the estimated length of your treatment. You may want to also consult an accredited cosmetic dentist about the possiblility of porcelain veneers. Sometimes this procedure is called "instant ortho" because it can have the effect on many people of transforming teeth with gaps into a beautifully straight smile in only a couple of weeks. Good luck!
