My teeth are a real mess. I have a huge gap on the front two teeth. Those teeth are really big compared with the other teeth. What should I do and how much will it cost?
What to Do with Gapped and Two Big Front Teeth?

Large Front Teeth, Small Smile!
Whenever I see a person with huge front teeth, I see a person who has a narrow upper jaw. The picture shows a young person who may have other problems and needs a comprehensive orthodontic examination. The orthodontist would check for airway obstructions (enlarged tonsils or adenoids) and plan a correction of the narrow upper jaw. This can be handled very nicely with Dentofacial Orthopedic Appliances to create proper facial balance. Ultimately the large upper front teeth will be a strong asset when properly corrected with true lower facial harmony. Remember all those Cover Girls or Hollywood Stars with beautiful full smiles. None have small teeth!
