I'm 19 and my teeth are done falling out and have been for a long time. My upper lateral incisors never grew in on either side they just didn't exist. That caused a lot of my teeth to kind of space out including my front. The enamel on my teeth has always been weak and it's caused some of my back teeth to be brittle around the ages and two have chips broken from them. I don't have any problem with staining my teeth are fairly white. My bottom teeth don't have any issues really it all just seems to be my top.

  • For gaps and misalignment of teeth, dental braces treatment can be done. Dental braces will align the teeth and will make them straight. Dental braces will be given for duration of 18-24 months depending on extent of misalignment which is present and your age. You can opt for metallic, ceramic or lingual dental braces. If you don’t want braces, then you can even opt for invisaligns for straightening the teeth. Invisaligns are clear, removable aligners and duration of treatment of invisaligns is same or more than dental braces.. If gaps between teeth are because of small size of teeth, then cosmetic procedures such as dental veneers or dental crowns can be given. For gaps between front teeth, you can opt for porcelain or porcelain fused to metal dental crowns. Porcelain dental crowns are preferred for front teeth as they are more aesthetic than PFM dental crowns. Without clinical examination, it is difficult to give definite diagnosis. You can visit an orthodontist who is specialist in giving dental braces for treatment.
