In pop culture, orthodontics—and braces specifically—are typically associated with adolescence. However, the truth is that there are all kinds of people who can benefit from straighter teeth, and there are plenty of ways to get them.

Veneers, for example, are an underappreciated method of fixing a crooked, gapped, or otherwise misaligned smile. If you want to learn more about how that works, and whether it’ll work for you, here’s what you should know.

How Can Veneers Straighten Your Teeth?

When your teeth are crooked, that has to do with both the shape and position of them. Braces and clear aligners work by moving your teeth into a new spot, but changing their shape so that they don’t clash is just as good of a solution.

This is where veneers come in. Your dentist can remove a small amount of your enamel and place perfectly aligned veneers on top of them, giving you the appearance of a straight smile.

What are the Benefits of Veneers as Orthodontics?

Not only are veneers capable of straightening your teeth, but there are actually quite a few reasons to prefer them to other methods of tooth replacement. For one, veneers can solve several kinds of aesthetic issues all at once, including discoloration and any chips or cracks you’re dealing with.

Veneers also have the advantage of being considerably faster to get than braces. Orthodontics typically takes years to complete, while veneers can straighten your smile in as few as two appointments!

When Are Veneers Not Sufficient?

However, braces are specifically designed to move teeth, which makes them a better option for some patients. For one, there are some kinds of severe misalignment that veneers can’t help you with, like teeth that are heavily rotated.

It’s also worth noting that veneers don’t do anything to address over, under, or crossbites. If you want to deal with the alignment of your bite, you’ll need a full mouthpiece to help you.
