I’m hoping you can give me some guidance. I am really embarassed by my smile. My teeth are crooked and stained. I don’t even smile anymore. I don’t want braces because I’m an adult and have to face co-workers, but I can’t afford porcelain veneers. I’m feeling desperate. Do you have any recommendations for me?

I understand your feelings and I have a couple of suggestions for you. There have been so many advances in orthodontics over the years, that there is now a way to straighten your teeth without wearing braces.
You could get Invisalign to straighten your teeth. They work faster than braces and no one will no that you’re wearing them. Depending on the condition of your teeth and gums, your dentist might be able to let your aligners double as teeth whitening trays. That would enable you to straighten and whiten your teeth at the same time.
