Post I have ONE crooked do I fix 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?

I heard this product called "Invisilign" works. It's this clear mouthpiece that you wear for a few hours a day. Ask an orthodontist about it.

You really need to go see a Dentist for a consultation. If it's true that your teeth and gums are in excellent condition, then you may only need to wear a retainer to correct the problem. Invisaline is nothing more than a good-promotional product. It can't correct moderate to severe malocclusion. Besides, I suspect that you may have other problems involved, like periodontitis or occlusion problems that may contribute to this rotated, over-jet condition.

I had my teeth fixed by Dr. Greg Lituchy in NY - he did a fantastic job and the porcelain bonding is very realistic. It was very expensive but worth it. You should be able to find a good cosmetic dentist in your area. But make sure to ask to see samples of the type of porselain teeth they use. They shouldn't be too thick - nor too smooth, as real teeth have little ridges.
