Hey, so I'm posting in this thread as I feel this is the one that applies best for my situation.

For the past few years, my dental health habits haven't been the best. I brushed twice a day for most of my life, and only started flossing my teeth two years ago. I've gotten to the point where I have maintained my teeth for the past year and half. However, by maintained I mean maintaining the gross looking teeth I already have without them getting progressively worse. I also go to my dentist every 6 months. The dentist has been focusing on the back teeth as opposed to the front. Also, to clarify, I do mean to get advice from my dentist, but would like opinions from other dental health experts too.

I would like to improve the appearance of my front teeth, but I do not know where to get started. I have attached some pictures of them to this post, and would like advice on what I can do to improve/fix my teeth and any other things I should take care of.

I have posted pictures below. In each picture I assign a number to each tooth, for easy reference. I do need dental work on teeth not referenced, but for now would like to focus solely on the top front 8.

Please note that tooth 3 has had a filling in the surface which has gotten stained, and which I will need to get reapplied.

Thank you in advance. Also please let me know if this is not the right thread for this sort of post.

I would consider starting with orthodontics, such as clear aligner therapy. This will close the gap, and decrease the overjet . Thereafter you, can consider a bleaching, where after the stained filling can be replaced.
