What can I do about my front teeth? (photo)

Hi I have long been concerned about my front teeth, I have a missing lateral incisor (currently baby tooth remains) and my front teeth are jagged. I have been told that dental bonding would prevent my back teeth from touching correctly, which seems odd as my teeth have worn to this look. I will need a bridge at some point, however is there anything else I can do to resolve this. Also if I were to get the bridge can dental bonding be don't to this bridge. Basically I am not clear on my options.

Your biggest problem is an underdeveloped upper arch. The best way to resolve your problem is developing your upper arch. This can be done nicely with a removable appliance. After development of your upper arch braces will resolve most of your other issues and then your missing lateral incisor can be replaced with an implant.

Good luck!
