Questions regarding braces and overlapping teeth..
Q. Hi, I had braces when i was in high school. they were on for 18 months i think. the top ones were removed first and slowly i started noticing an overlap on my front teeth. In 2008 i had the overlapped tooth filed a little so it wouldn’t look so out of place. have a few questions: (1) will the filing down of my tooth affect the end result should i wish to have my overlap straightened? (2) what would be the most cost effective yet permanent solution which is not obvious? (3) I have fixed retainers on the back of my bottom front teeth (from high school days), are they meant to be there for life?,
A. hi the filling it is probably a composite so can easily be removed if you dedide to have treatment the most cosmetic non obvious solution is clear aligners or invisalign yes retainers can quite happily stay there for life
