Can I Still Get Braces for Free?

I’m 17 and have had braces before for my front right tooth. I then was given a retainer to wear, but unfortunately I had a chip in my front right tooth and had to get this filled at my dentist. This meant my retainer wouldn’t fit. It’s been too long and I am very self conscious of my teeth and wondered if it was free for me to have them again, seeing as I’m under the age of 18, or if not, how much would the process of me getting braces again cost?

Thank you.

Hi, thank you for getting in touch. I don’t think you’ll get the braces done for free I’m afraid, you should go back to your orthodontist, there might be a very quick fix instead of the full braces again? Kind regards, Andrew.
