Are my teeth straight?

#1 Post by Ruby77 »

They are due to come off next week but they don't look as great as I imagined. The 2 teeth next to my front teeth could be straighter I think? Every time I mention it to my orthodontist, he does some tweaks but looks at me like I'm mad!

What do you think?

I think they look straight! Mine are due to come off next month and are not nearly as finished as yours look. If you get a little whitening (Crest whitestrips are great if you don't want to pay the prices for a dental whitening), I think you'll look fantastic! :D

Your teeth look straight to me. What exactly about the two teeth that you don't like? Maybe you could take a pic and make some illustration? and show your ortho what exactly you are hoping to get?

Ok thanks everyone!

I just feel like the second teeth could turn a bit more, they're not quite flush with the front teeth but noone else seems to be able to see it so maybe its just me!

Will definitely get them whitened next and looking forward to being able to eat what I want! :jump:

Ditto for me. I still have a ways to go before I get mine off in a month! But, when I look at how far I've come, they are so much better. Not as good as the OP's yet, though. Hopeful they will come around quickly!

You know what, they're actually not perfect. I still feel like my bite needs some adjusting on one side so I'll see what he says when I go back for my retainer. Also, that tooth next to my front tooth looks like it's sticking out a bit.

But compared to how they were they look great and maybe there are limitations of my teeth and my jaw as to how close to perfect I can get so yes, I'm happy :D
