I am 44 years old and have a narrow upper jaw and crossbite, despite having had braces in my 20’s. I am thinking about having SARPE surgery and Lingual braces but am nervous about the surgery and having to live with a metal expander for 3 months followed by a year of orthodontics. Ideally I would like to improve my bite but I am not sure if it is worth it at my age. The main thing that bothers me is my front teeth stick out a bit. Could cosmetic dentistry (say in the form of veneers) offer some improvement? Thanks.
