Dear Patient we at Smile Essentials Dental clinic believe in giving you specialized care for your problems namely the speciality of straightening and aligning teeth called orthodontia. Let me commend you on 2 things one being conscious of your smile and doing something about it at a young age,and two sending an image for the same.(although a front image would also help) You are at the right age to deal with situation with braces being the best option and depending on the severity of the problem and the orthodontist's approach it will take a minimum of 6 months onwards-both your problems of fixing the gap and aligning the teeth can be sorted with the same treatment -but an exact time frame can be given upon consultation. Also if you don't like the look of metal braces there are multiple options of invisible braces that are available now Hope that answers your question and wish you get the perfect smile you're seeking!

Time period for treatment with braces varies depending on the degree of correction required. Only a thorough examination can help predict that. Alternatively if you are only concerned with the gap in your front tooth and nothing else then it can be fixed with a cosmetic filling or even ceramic veneers in a single day.

Dear Patient. To correct the alignment of your teeth, braces would be definitely required. Minimum treatment duration for braces for any case would be 12 months. Complete diagnosis and treatment plan can only be discussed after seeing the patient .

Hello
