I think your teeth look awesome! I wish mine looked that straight! I have the exact opposite of your problem- my gums show when I smile. You should definitly just get that long string connected to your upper lip cut. It will allow you to show a lot more teeth. The reason I think that is the best opt...

When I first got my braces off, I was so happy with the results. Everything was perfect and looked even. About a month afterward, I ended up losing my retainers and the ortho took 1 month to replace them for me, and that's when my teeth started to move. My ortho offered free braces or retainers agai...

Getting braces again- do you think its worth it???

Braces have been off for over 3 years, and slowly my bite has been shifting and causing me to grind my teeth almost 24 hours a day, which is evident by how jagged my molars have become and the strain i've been having on my jaw. My ortho said that the cause of grinding was from my teeth only meeting...

experience with a modified spring retainer?

As shown in my other post, i'm very unsatisfied with the way my lateral incisors have shifted. I was wondering if any of you have (or know about) a modified spring retainer and if it does a good job with rotating these teeth outward at all? Any other suggestions of what could work in my situation gr...

thanks! :] i've explained to my ortho SO many times and he just says it's a natural part of my teeth and that he doesn't see anything wrong with them. i've made a consultation appointment at a new ortho and i've read up on some options and i'm going to see if maybe a modified spring retainer might b...

Teeth shifting inward? Opinions? PICS!!!

I've had my braces off for about 2 years now, and my boyfriend recently pointed out that my teeth seem to be rotating inward as you can see in this picture: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v614/hisprettysmile/teeth2009.png It seems as though they are almost slanting and starting to move on top of ...

I know it's bad, but I bought clear ligs online and changed my own ones every week! You're not supposed to change your own because it's too much pressure on your teeth or something, but i started doing it toward the end of my progress when I wasn't really doing anything but waiting for my teeth to s...

I am not sure about your question, but if my teeth looked even half that good, I would pee my pants in delight! I think they look awesome. Thank you! I think i've always had an unrealistic idea in my mind about how my teeth should look. Other people can have teeth not even as straight and i will as...

Weird spaces in bite..should I get braces again?

These were never fixed, and i'm not sure why. My bite obviously isn't alligned right, and when I bite down everything looks "off." Also, my 2 teeth on each side of the front ones started slanting toward the front teeth again, as they were before I had braces. I wear my retainers 24/7, so I don't und...

Teeth keep moving even with 24/7 retainer wear?

I probably should be getting my wisdom teeth out, and that is why my teeth are shifting so quickly and for no reason, but I wear my upper and lower retainers 24/7 and I still have noticed movement (especially in my lower teeth). I was thinking about possibly getting a lower bonded retainer BUT one t...

cost of a new retainer/ getting fitted?

My boyfriends front two teeth are starting to look "buck" and he lost his retainer a long time ago. I was wondering how much it would cost to take him to the ortho and get fitted for a new one. Would a retainer even fix his front two teeth? His bite is perfect.

really freaked out..last minute thing?

I just got my 4 molar bands off friday and my ortho shaved between my front teeth and now there is a huge gap. I have a power chain but I am wondering why they did this at the last minute bc my teeth already have changed since friday and I am getting my braces off in 2 weeks. Won't my retainers not ...
