Dental Veneers Vs. Braces

If you want a perfect smile, you have plenty of options out there to get it. The question is, which treatment option is the best fit for you? Some of the most popular treatment options that people choose for fixing their smiles are dental veneers, and braces.  Both are vastly different in terms of the treatment itself, but they both have fantastic results for those looking for a better, healthier smile.  


Dental Veneers: Pros & Cons

Dental veneers are small “shells” that are specially designed to fit perfectly over your teeth, covering up small imperfections like chips, discoloration, and more. There are made from a porcelain material that is semi-translucent, so when the veneers are bonded to your teeth, you’re left with a perfect, natural-looking smile! Here are the pros and cons of veneers:



  • Fast Treatment For Fast Results

  • Fixes Most Small Imperfections In Your Teeth

  • Comfortable & Unnoticeable

  • Alternative To Some Orthodontic & Whitening Treatments

  • Stain Resistant



  • Cannot Fix Severely Misaligned Teeth

  • Requires Minor Grinding Down Of Teeth To Fit Veneers On The Teeth


Braces: Pros & Cons

Braces are the classic orthodontic treatment if you want a perfect smile. With more options now than ever before, you can choose between metal or clear braces so you can get straight teeth how you want to. Of course there are pros and cons of getting braces, as we can see below:



  • Perfectly Straight Teeth
