I have had a root canal, 2 crowns and 1 extraction - out of pocket for that has cost me around $3000.00. Insurance covered a little over that amount as well. My metal upper and lower braces are going to cost $5,470.00. I think my insurance covers $1200.00 of the ortho treatment. By the time all is s...

Considering the teeth are in the bone, and the bone is what holds the face up, having braces and expecting absolutely no facial changes is kind of silly. I really like my face too. I think it's beautiful as is, but I understand that improving my teeth/bite is going to change my face in some small wa...

All I can say is WOW, AMAZING, and ASTONISHING. I would never have thought that everything would have turned out so well after seeing your first pictures. You had some pretty bad looking pearlies. My case is NOWHERE as bad as yours and if my teeth look half as good in the end I will be very happy. I...

Can I get the braces with the temp crown? I know that my teeth will be moving around. My temporary is filed down to fit into the to...

WOW !!! I am surprised that the ortho put braces on if your teeth are in that bad of a shape. I was hoping to get my braces before the end of this year - but I need to get all of the periodontal cleaning done - as well as a couple of extractions and my dentist wouldn't even think of sending me to h...

Guess cuz I need them and wasn't able to get them as a child. Mom and Dad thought the best way to remedy a bad tooth was to get rid of it. So as a result I have few molars left and my other teeth have shifted terribly. I am looking forward to braces now. Metal with the colored ligs - how cool can t...
