Hi there. I used to have such lovely teeth but over time I didn’t go to see the dentist as much as I should have and now my bottom two front teeth have lost a lot of the gum in the middle and it has caused them to grow apart. Now I have a 7mm gap between. As you can imagine this is very embarrassing and has affected my confidence. Also I do not work at the minute due to depression and anxiety and so my NHS dentist says they can’t do anything for me to help the teeth look better. I feel self-conscious when I talk or smile. I was wondering what treatment I would need if I saved and paid for the work I needed and what help there is, if any, to maybe help me pay for the treatment I need. I was also wondering if you think braces would be of any help to me at all? I’d appreciate any advice you could give me.
