Re: Big Front Teeth

Ah, join me in kicking ourselves in the rear, won't you? I did the same thing, meaning, I didn't wear the retainer after my braces either.

I'm sure there are a few things you could do.

1. You could check into the Invisalign Braces that are out now. They might be able to straighten your teeth back out.

2. You could have the shape completely changed. I believe it's called Veneers, but don't quote me on that. They basically take your teeth, file them down on the sides, ( I don't know how they actually do it, but it involves removing some of your natural tooth) and then put "covers" over that. Kind of like crowns, but not. Make sense?

Don't take my word for it. There are things you can do for your teeth if you want to spend the $$ to get it done.

Hope that helps a little.
