Your : Your treatment may be very simple... Best bet would probably be a minor orthodontic case with brackets and a wire, which could take just a few months. Then there is always invisalign, but you would need to consult with your dentist, in hilo, as to what would be best for your particular situation and the fee for that treatment. Besk of luck to you.

Dentists : Dentists need more information about your tooth before we can leap to an answer. We need to examine the tooth and gums and the whole mouth really, we would want to see x-rays and then develop a treatment plan base upon our findings. We can not give a any kind of meaningful answer without. We want to know if your tooth has healthy bone, and is just misaligned and might be straightened with an orthodontic appliance. It might be that the bone supporting the tooth has started to erode away and the tooth is drifting. It might also be possible to recontour the tooth and obtain a favorable appearance, and it may also be possible to add bonded composite resin or a veneer or crown and obtain a beautiful result that way. You need to be examined by a dentist. Good luck! dr neil mcleod dds dentistry that lasts - quality that coiunts.

Determining : Determining "best" is difficult. What one person says is great, another will say is malpractice. Some say elective porcelain veneers should never be done, yet some dentists only do elective porcelain veneers. A general rule of thumb is "the best dentistry is the least amount needed to achieve the goal." a slightly crooked tooth may benefit best from minor orthodontics and likely won't take long. However, I have placed porcelain veneers in situations like this as well, and those patients felt that that was the best treatment. Fees for all options will vary from state to state, city to city and office to office.
