Will Braces Really Help my Teeth or Worsen It (photo)?

i have my front two teeths protruded out and overlappd as shown in photo. i m scared if getting braces will really help after listening to some scaring feedbacks. some people find it cute but it embarrasses me most of d time . i dont want my face structure to change as i have heard so far .(underbite/overbite cases) . i want my teeths to be looked upon and want a confident doctor to say "yes your teeth will be fine ..just like others". look at it and let me know if i am worth having normal teeth.?

Braces Will Help

Of course braces will work, and more importantly of course you are worth it! The crowding of your front teeth is nothing unusual to a well experienced professional. Forget what you’ve read , all you care about is your own case and this is not uncommon. Straight teeth not only give a beautiful confident smile but they function properly and are easier to keep clean and healthy.

Will braces help my teeth

Orthodontic treatment can only make your teeth look better and put them in a healthier bite position. The main reason things don't work out properly is when patients try to cut corners in choosing a proper, qualified person for treatment. You should see an orthodontist for a consultation.

Braces will help!

Braces will help correct your crowding, bite issues and reduce the dental protrusion.  I suggest you see an Orthodontist for a consultation to evaluate your bite.  They will be able to evaluate your crowding, address your concerns and discuss your treatment alternatives.  Best of luck!
