I’ve been searching for a good dentist to straighten my crooked tooth. My tooth next to my right front tooth is crooked and pushed back. I know there are a couple options, braces or possibly Invisalign, but I’m not sure which I would be a good candidate for. Are there any other options? Should I just have the tooth pulled?

Most of the time Invisalign will work for adults who have crooked teeth, but another option is to have porcelain veneers placed on your teeth. If you want to straighten your tooth right away, then porcelain veneers is the best and quickest approach.
Some dentists my offer extracting that tooth as an option, but I don’t advise you to do this. This will cause you to have an uneven number of front teeth, which will not improve your smile. Your front teeth include a combination of different shapes, and you have some options to making them look straight. But one thing you want to make sure of is that your smile remains symmetrical by keeping all six teeth.
