Hi, I just received a 3d model of my teeth for a proposed treatment plan with clear aligners. I used to have braces and the changes I need are very minor. In the finished model, my front top teeth flare out at an angle, where as now they are straight up and down. The orthodontist said they are supposed to flare out, something about matching the angle of the root. I think it looks weird. Are teeth supposed to flare out or be straight up and down? I have a slight underbite and having the teeth flare at an angle makes them clear the bottom row--I thought an underbite was treated differently.
