Correcting the midline is a definitely correctable condition with several possible treatments including bonding, veneers, and orthodontics. The key is to visit a good cosmetic dentist that can see your particular situation and advise you of your unique choices. Good luck!
Midline discrepancies can be corrected in a number of ways.
If the midline of your upper teeth is not centered with your upper lip and/or nose, this discrepancy can be corrected in a number of ways including orthodontics and/or porcelain laminate veneers to create a more centered and proportional relationship. The treatment required often depends on the size of the deviation from the midline. Under 2mm is a minor flaw, more than 2mm requires careful planning and you should consult with a good aesthetic dentist.
