I Have Braces but my Front Tooth is Curved, Can Anything Be Done to Fix It?

I've had braces for nearly a year now so my teeth are straight but due to my front tooth being curved the tooth next to it doesn't look straight therefore it doesn't look nice. It's not only curved when looking straight forward at it but my dentist explained to me that if I were to look at my front tooth on a side view it is still curved inwards. So is there anything to do to fix this tooth without pulling it out?
Unsightly Front Tooth
More than likely, there is a simple solution to your problem. Since I only have your description of the problem and nothing else to go on I will assume your teeth all look beautiful except for this one "curved" tooth. This type of situation is normally easily rectified with a simple cosmetic bonding procedure or with a porcelain veneer or perhaps a crown. If the tooth is otherwise healthy there is no need to take it out but rather simply alter its appearance and in dentistry we have plenty of procedures to alter the appearance of a tooth or multiple teeth. There is no need to worry...your problem can be easily fixed.
