My Upper Molars Have Been Filled And Now My Teeth Are Moving Apart, I Don’t Want Braces, Help?

Q.
Doc, due to my consumption of sugary intake whilst at young age has caused me to have few of my upper molars drilled n filled n some taken out n because of that my up front teeth seem to be moving apart making spaces that i never had few years ago. Some of my family have recommended me i wear braces but i thought can’t wear braces in refilled teeth and also due to feeling embarrassment it is not something that i want to really do as people will see them all the time. What would you recommend me to do?
A.
Hello. Thank you for your question. It is really difficult to answer your question without a consultation. However, I think that the best option for you is orthodontics as your family has advised. There are different options of braces, some of them are clear which may be applicable to your particular problem as they cannot really be seen and therefore will not be embarrassing for you.

I would advise that you see your dentist and ask for a referral.
