I am missing two top teeth. I only have my two front and my canines. Thus leaving a "gappy" smile. I missed out on having braces as a kid, so when I went to my new dentist, he told me that I should just get porcelain crowns to shape the front upper smile (4 crowns).
He said if I get braces, he would still have to shape the two canine teeth anyway, and the whole ordeal would be costly. Is this a bad idea? What are the long term consequences? He said my teeth are healthy, so I don't know if this is the right route to take at the age of 23.
