Dentist, Prosthodontics 's  Response
Ideally braces are the treatment of choice for correcting teeth positions, but newer types of treatment have also been in the market for a while called invisalign. These are trays which are used to correct positioning of teeth but they just like braces are a long term treatment modality which needs to be constantly checked by a dentist. further more not every case is a good case for invisalign, which your dentist will decide for you.
Apart from long term orthodontic treatment such as braces and invisalign, other options are treatments which can be done in a couple of days, such as laminates and crowns to reposition the teeth or close gaps. The drawback for them is that healthy teeth are cut for the placement of the restorations. Patients who do not want such long treatments such as braces can surely look in this direction. I would recommend you to further discuss your options with your dentist.

Hi,inclined teeth can only be corrected with the help of an orthodontic appliance. Orthodontic appliances can be removable or fixed depending on the severity of malocclusion. Please consult your dentist. Invisible braces are also available these days. Take care!
