    Hi there, I just consulted with a doctor who said the below would require roughly 2 years of orthodontic treatment that should be dolloeee by veneers on six teeth on both jaws because my jaws are larger while teeth are small so closing the gaps would not be a possibility. Please note that there is a childhood tooth (a small one) that's is a leftover and needs to be extracted. Any ideas or recodomendations? I was also aiming for lingual braces but I was told this is a complicated situation so lingual braces is a not a option.

    Hello-

    This is treatable using orthodontics, but would most likely also require jaw surgery because of how elongated the lower jaw is. Are all your wisdom teeth completely erupted? Are you planning on doing an implant/bridge on your lower right missing molar? Veneers are quite pricy, around $1,000 a tooth and require maintenance throughout the years (about every 10-15 years the veneers will perhaps need to be replaced). They also completely alter the shape of your natural tooth.

    Call a few orthodontists in your area- nearly all orthodontists offer free consultation initial exams where they can help you figure out if orthodontics is the right path for you. Best of luck!

    Invite multiple orthodontists in your area - almost all orthodontists offer free counseling examinations to help you determine if orthodontics are the right way for you. Great luck!
