This is a cosmetic question but I was hoping someone could share some light.
Here are some pictures of my bite: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/77ste3luo7ddswa/Ep15Nx0EY-
Do I have just a simple case of an underbite?
Is this fixable with surgery? I'd rather do something dramatic that can be over in a few weeks rather than years of braces. If it matters, i'm 25 years old.
Ya, its hard to say exactly but even if you do get surgery, you would still need braces for some fine tuning and aligning
An orthodontist would take a look at your back molars too to see how they line up as well. If you can imagine, if you slide your jaw backwards so that the bottom teeth are now behind, your back teeth which may be properly aligned are now off. That doesn't really help either. They'd probably take a cephalometric x-ray to see your jaws and how they relate and determine if surgery is necessary.
