Ah, sorry for the REALLY late reply.
So when I went back the next day to get my retainers, I asked the ortho about it and he said it HAD to stick out because of the way my jaw is and if the teeth were straight down, I would have a severe underbite instead.
And recently I just received a letter with pictures of the before and after teeth from the ortho and it just fueled my dislike for my teeth new teeth =(
Actually, my teeth weren't that bad to start with since I've had braces before this ortho, just that my adult canine wasn't growing properly so they had to drill a hole in my gum and blahblahblah, which resulted in another 5 years of braces.
I've practically have had braces for half my life so I'm thinking I have the right to be anal about this.
And here are some pictures!
The before and after:
See how before my teeth were sort of turned in as opposed to now...
I wonder if it's just a part of growing up or what...
I think I was about 12 in the before picture and I'm 18 now...
I'd much rather have my teeth as it was before, even if it was a little misaligned =(
That huge gap on the right side (which is really my left) of the right picture bothers me a great deal
What I meant by my teeth sticking out. The left side is just bad =(
And a bad quality cam photo that emphasizes the slantiness
Every time I look at the before and after pictures now, I feel agitation building up
And I'm VERY conscious about laughing and showing a big smile now, even more so then when I had braces on...
Maybe all this disappointment was self inflected as I was anticipating my brace-less smile too much =(
I'm going to be going back to the ortho for the 2 month retainer check in a few days
I was just wondering if it would be valid complaint if I asked him to turn my teeth back to more like how it was before, turning in instead of out...
And I don't really want to be seeing another dentist as I don't have the funds to
There is a dental department on campus where I go, but it would probably take another few K's to get it fixed the way I want...
