#Veneers vs braces

If you want to fix your teeth by making them white and closing the gaps, I would recommend veneers.  This would give you the fastest, most permanent and most cosmetic results.  However, veneer can be out of budget for many people, but not saying that it is out of your budget.

On the other hand, if you want straight teeth without gaps, braces may be what you want.  The braces will not improve the color of your teeth, but will save you money.  Braces will also require the lifetime use of retainer, or else relapse can occur.
