Can my Midline Be Corrected Due to Missing Lateral? (photo)
I knocked out my left lateral when I was younger. I had braces and my ortho shifted my teeth forward and then shaped my canine to look like the lateral. Years later my teeth shifted, so I recently completed invisalign. My midline shifted even more to the side and my dentist said that it wouldn't look so bad once the whole process was done. I have the temporary vaneers and I go back in a few weeks for porcelain ones. Is there anything to fix the midline? Braces?
