Embarrassed about my smile is there any other solution than braces?

Q. I am very embarrassed about my smile my teeth are just so wonky they just look a mess what other solutions are there instead of braces I want them sorted out as soon as possible. Please help!

A. Braces can take as little as 6 weeks to move your teeth into the right place.  You would be amazed what is possible.  If you still do not want this the other option is veneers but will require the teeth to be heavily prepared which can compromise there health.  Sometimes I will use a brace to move the teeth followed by minimal veneers to improve the shape of the teeth – because the teeth are in a better position the veneers are much safer to do.

Hello, im currently suffering from wearing braces as i wanted straight teeth, ive had them on now for around 6months and i feel reall embarressed by them, i wont leave my home. they really hurt my mouth and i very rarely go back to my dentist to have them checked on because my dentist is not very nice and i dont like to go for that reason , i would like to know if there are any other ways i could get my teeth straight without using braces and without spending a fortune, as im only 16 and am still in full time education. what can i do?? Thankyou for your time.
