Rather than actually moving the teeth into the desired position, minor misalignments can be corrected by simply capping a wonky tooth with a straight crown.

Can you make your own teeth braces?
Do-it-yourself ( DIY ) braces are exactly what they sound like: braces that someone who is not a dental professional has decided to apply to their own teeth.

Can I get braces for no reason?
There aren’t many people who would get braces just for the fun of it (and probably not many orthodontists who would let people get them just for the fun of it). But there are other reasons besides the obvious one of a mouth full of crooked teeth. The most common other reason for braces is to realign the jaw.
Are braces painful?
The honest answer is that braces do not hurt at all when they are applied to the teeth, so there is no reason to be anxious about the placement appointment. There will be mild soreness or discomfort after the orthodontic wire is engaged into the newly placed brackets, which may last for a few days to a week.
Do crooked teeth get worse?

Can you get braces on front teeth only?
