Orthodontics

I had my 4 premolars removed for orthodontic treatment,but now after braces are removed all my teeth from canines to back are slanted inward making my smile hollow and face sunken. I asked my doctor for it,but they said we're technically sound and know what we're doing.I really want to have a broader smile.could this be fixed with the help of retainer? I mean the angle of teeth's to be more outward?

Hi,
Ideally during your treatment most of times the arch is expanded. But still i will advice you to visit a MDS Orthodontist for second opinion.
Thank you- Dr kunal shah Anjana Multispeciality Dental Clinic Nashik

The teeth backwards to canine are basically meant for mastication/ chewing surface .Generally these teeth don't move buccolingually means in cheek side n tongue side . so d hollow appearance of smile must be due to extracted premolars. Moreover I think u have just a change of or smile profile rather than d hollow / sunken . u will find it quite normal .
