Re: want new teeth
Replacing the teeth would be a lot more than getting braces, you might be able to get veneers to make the teeth seem straighter or to fill gaps between teeth... but still veneers are also gonna problaby be more expensive than braces, insurance usually covers some of the cost of braces (depends on your coverage), but insuance will not cover the cost of veneers or false teeth just to make them look better... Braces are a pain but well worth it, if you are really concerned about the look of braces those invisalign ones might be an option

Hi Lerner, the best bet for you is to work to make your teeth healthy and pretty. Porcelien Veneers are out of this world costly. I have heard they are $1000 per tooth, I'm sure you can get them cheaper than that, but that is just an idea. Braces will generally run you $5000 for a whole treatment. I'm 26 and getting braces in less than a month, they make clear ones so they aren't nearly as bad as the metal mouth look. Once you get beautiful straight teeth you can get them whitened and then they will be perfect.

Re: want new teeth
the only thing with braces is it takes a long time : / to get my teeth perfect anyways i have a underbite and my jaw is crooked and i dont think after its all said and done my teeth will be white, ill ask my dentist about it tho i was going to get them a while ago but the price was alot higher than 5000 for the whole thing
