  • If you have serious malformation, discoloration, or misalignment of the teeth, then you would find porcelain veneers to be a much better option for your unique circumstance.
  • If you feel that your teeth are misaligned and small, then you would find porcelain veneers to be quite ideal. This is because they would be made from a mold of your teeth and would thus fit inside your mouth quite proportionately.
