Hi Dr, My front 4 teeth slightly overlap and have holes in the middle, one tooth is slightly chipped. I would love to have perfectly straight teeth without the holes and chips. I asked my dentist and she said I would need 4 Veneers but I also could go to an orthodontist to get these teeth straightened and then filling them would be no problem and it might be better. I’m not sure what is the best thing to do – get braces and then end up getting veneers also, taking more time and money or just getting veneers now to solve all my problems but in the long run what would the benefits be am I better to try to preserve my natural teeth as long as possible? Also my daugther is 10 and her teeth are very crooked bottom and top. She still has some baby teeht and her eye teeth have not come down yet – is it too early to start orthodontic treatment?
