Post I have ONE crooked tooth...how would I correct it without the use of braces??

My top left buck/rabbit tooth is sort of jutting out a little because I used to bite my nails with it.
It really really bothers me aesthetic wise and I would like to correct it.

Other then that my teeth are perfect.

How would I fix this one crooked tooth?

Thanks!

Contact a dentist for a consultation. It doesnt seem like you would need braces if you only have one tooth that is crooked. There are other cosmetic ways of fixing a crooked tooth. A dentist can look at your tooth (and possibly take x rays) and tell you the best treatment to fix your tooth.

Yes, I agree call your dentist and explain what is going on. You might get out of having to wear full ortho in some cases they will make a retainer for you to wear. If the tooth is not interfearing with any other tooth. Your dentist knows your case history so I would talk too him/her.
Good luck and God bless
