    Queen B, it is not the color, it is the structure and my overbite.
    i brush my teeth like 4-6 times a day just in hope that my jaw will grow and put the over crowded teeth in place. But it doesn't seem in my favor

    If you're hoping that using a toothbrush will do the trick, might I suggest a jackhammer?

    Seriously, if it's overcrowding of teeth, why not go with braces? Or even have a couple pulled. Seems like an awful lot to go through for overcrowding.

    Okay, let me throw this out. I have a bridge on my lower 2 front teeth, which were a little crooked. And the bridge aligned them. And the top front two are starting to crowd. I'd do anything to get those two teeth straight. It's all I see when I look in the mirror. Can they do that with Veneers?

    If you have issues with teeth being crooked/overcrowding or overbites, you need braces.

    Yes, I agree with Speedbump and John that when it comes to fixing overbites and overcrowding teeth, braces, retainers, or pallete expanders should do the job. Veneers are used to hide the appearance of cracks, chips, or if the teeth have been ground down.

    The braces would probably save you money and be healthier for you teeth in the long run also!

    Ah, TJ. Fond memories. I've gotten jumped, had to pay off the police to get back to the border and food poisoning...all in the first hour I was there.

    On a serious note, not to make light of your question, but I would not recommend TJ as a place for anything remotely associated with medicine or treatment.

    I have.



    ACK! That's hideous. I'll try to find out how to make it smaller. I was trying to be funny, not scare people.
