Second time around
Hello, im a 26 year old man. I`ve had braces in my teenage years to close gaps in the front of my top and bottom front teeth. I stop wearing my reatiner years ago, and they have spread some. I was wonder ing if I should get braces again, or should I try veneers or cosmetic surgery?
If possible I would discuss this with your previous orthodontist. Sometimes the solution is a combination of a short term of orthodontics and veneers. You need to have an observation appointment with the orthodontist to discuss the options.
