These are my bottom teeth. My braces came off last week and they don't look straight...

Dental braces and teeth still not straight

I agree with you not the result I would expect however I haven't got seen your before pictures, As a dentist we would prefer our own patients coming back to us and telling us their problems, so I would advise you to see your orthodontist who treated you as I believe he would be more than happy to correct your alignment.What retention was used? I'd suggest a bonded retainer.
Hope this helps

I'll agree with you, that's not a great result.  I would suggest that you show your orthodontist this result and consider a short course of retreatment either by getting your braces back on or even finishing with Invisalign.
