Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am getting married in six months and looking to go for an orthodontic brace treatment for teeth gap. Can I start it here and continue this treatment under another doctor's supervision in a new country if it takes longer?


Welcome to icliniq.com.

Kindly upload an image of the gap that you need to get corrected. There are a few possibilities that will solve your issue in a week.

Orthodontic treatment might need more than six months approximately to a year, but everthing depends upon the space in between. So kindly upload an image of the gap to me. Use a flash if possible and I will assist immediately and walk you through the treatment needed.

We can even use a dental crown to hide this gap.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

Please find the attachment. I am awaiting your suggestions.


Welcome back to icliniq.com.

I went through the images (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

You need not wait for six months to treat the gap and slight overjet in upper central incisors. You just need a dental crown in both the teeth. Gap is minimal and the issue will be resolved in a week.

Get zirconia crowns and it is esthetically superior and best in class. The shade will be matched by your dentist and you will also recieve warranty. Placing two crowns in your upper central incisors will make your smile picture perfect and the best part is no one will understand whether you went for a treatment or not.

So all I suggest is not to go for orthodontic correction and get two dental crown (zirconia) to correct it. The treatment will be done in a maximum of one week and it is all done.

I hope this helps.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
