Improving Side Profile with Teeth Extraction/braces & Chin Implant? (photo)
Hi, I really want to improve my side profile, so I attached a photo of my current side profile and a photoshopped pic that I want my side profile to look like. My question is: is it possible to move my upper lip back that much by only extracting 4 premolars? I've heard that the lip moves 1/2 the distance the teeth moves back, but how many mm does the teeth move back? And should I extract first or second premolars?
