Quest for a Happy smile...

Hi there,

I have grown up with one tooth missing on the one side (my lateral incisor on the left hand side), it just never came out. Now i' ve got a bit of a wonky smile....which bothers me a lot. Im a very outgoing person but hate smiling cause im ashamed of my teeth. My two canine teeth are also more prominent than the rest, it sticks out a bit, not much, but a bit, which makes it even worse.

But overall, i have very very healthy teeth.

What are my options for a happy self-confident smile? And what would the costs involved be?

it is best to see on xray whether the missing tooth is present in the bone or not.if so, it may need to be removed first.
options range from dentures to a brdige to implants
costs will vary depending on the option.
