    Default Tooth filing - Cost?


    My front two teeth and bottom four teeth are not perfectly straight. This doesn't bother me and my dentist says that it won't cause any problems but I could have a brace to straighten them (I'm 19 and really don't want a brace obviously!). The only thing that irritates me is that, because they're a little bit wonky, they don't look straight on the bottom/top. So I was wondering if it would be possible to have the teeth filed to make them look straight. I think that they would only need filing about 1mm but I was wondering if this is a possibility and, if it is, if my normal dentist could do this for me and how much (very roughly) this would cost.

    Many thanks.

    Unfortunately it is impossible to suggest if this would be appropriate treatment ,without carrying out an examination. I would recommend you see your dentist , to see if this is possible. If it is then he/she would be able to give you an appropriate costing.
