Well, I am not a dental expert or anything, but I am not sure how a crown or a bridge is going to help that. I honestly would just get braces and correct it

Re: HELP best solution for this crooked tooth problem?

maybe what they will do is to remove the crooked teeth then put a crown bridge.

is that possible? (asking dentists)

Re: HELP best solution for this crooked tooth problem?

It is possible, but a bridge is put into place by filing down two of your natural teeth and crowns put on them. May I ask why you would want to just remove this good tooth and file down other good teeth for a cosmetic purpose when braces would allow you to keep all your good teeth and straighten it for you.

i was thinking of the fastest way to fix this because Im already 21 years old and my mom didnt let me have braces when i was younger because it costs too much.

Re: HELP best solution for this crooked tooth problem?

Having braces are probably be the best choice. As somebody else stated, why have a perfectly good tooth extracted. Yes, orthodontics will take time compared to a bridge, but the results will last a life time. A bridge, has a finite life depending upon the quality of dentistry.. In addition, as we age, our teeth darken and in 10 years a bridge may not match color wise. It's not necessarily best to go with the cheapest or quickest route.

Re: HELP best solution for this crooked tooth problem?

Orthodontics is the best and cheapest solution. Reckon on about a year to complete treatment.

Re: HELP best solution for this crooked tooth problem?

I am 30 and in braces again, not something I wanted but I knew that it would last. The time you are in them really all depends. I have seen some people in them for just 6 months. I have to wear mine for 18 months and my niece has to be in hers for 4 years. I know you won't have to go that long especially if it is just that one tooth.
