Could i use a dental flipper to make my teeth look straight? I don’t want to get braces.

A dental flipper is used as a temporary tooth replacement and will not make your teeth look any straighter. You have other options to make your teeth look straight though.
- Invisalign- You could actually straighten your teeth without traditional braces. Invisalign straightens your teeth without any one knowing and in about half the time it takes with your basic wire and bracket braces. Almost any general dentist who has learned the procedure can do this. It is not very complicated.
- Porcelain Veneers– These will not straighten your teeth, but will make your teeth appear straight. It can be completed in just two appointments. This, however, does take a dentist who has had a lot of additional training in cosmetic dentistry. Otherwise they will turn out looking fake.
