Crooked Smile after 5 Years of Braces
I hate to hear that you've worn braces for 5 years and are unhappy with your smile. From your photos, I can see the uneveness of the front teeth and crooked areas of your smile. It also looks like your premolars are dropped down on the sides, and there is too much gum show -- more on one side than the other. I hate to suggest more orthodontics for your case, however that's where I would start. My advice is for you to find the most skilled and experienced orthodontists (or dentists who are extremely successful in orthodontics - like a Rondeau-trained dentist), and ask for a consultation. It's possible that some oral surgery could be needed for the most ideal result, but maybe not. Your teeth are nice looking, and appear healthy, so I think if you could get them to the ideal position it will be your best bet.
