Veneers are a popular yet, NOT recommended, choice to straighten your teeth. They hide
the problem and conceal it, and they don’t address the structure of the mouth or how the top
and bottom teeth meet. Veneers aren’t permanent. Many need extensive amounts of tooth
enamel to be removed. If plaque builds up where the veneer and remaining natural tooth
meet, it can cause decay.
Orthodontic treatment is a process that uses braces or other appliances to move teeth into
their proper positions. By aligning the teeth and jaws, orthodontics can improve both your
appearance and your dental health. This is why orthodontic treatment usually takes longer
than getting veneers.
