Clear aligners is the easiest way to fix a single crooked tooth like yours. There are options that are also less expensive than Invisalign. Ask your doctor about Red, White and Blue. You could also wear a removable "retainer" called the Inman aligner to fix the one tooth out of alignment.Good luck!

Unfortunately a retainer would not have the ability to move your teeth in place. Only and orthodontic appliance would! Clear alignes would be ideal to use to move this tooth in position. Alternatively you may elect conventional braces. Your final results will look amazing!All the best,
