Veneers vs. Bonding – Which is Best for You?

dca-blog-254-Dental-Veneers_1200x630

Unhappy with your teeth or overall smile? Then you may want to consider dental bonding and porcelain veneers. See which one will suit your smile.

The Beauty of Bonding

Dental bonding is a favorite dental procedure because it can greatly improve both the function and look of your smile. In dental bonding, a tooth-colored resin is shaped completely over a tooth and then permanently secured with a UV curing light. For a fast solution to a dental problem, bonding is often best because it only demands one visit. This treatment is frequently used for the following issues:

  • Chips or cracks in a tooth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Poorly-spaced teeth
  • Short teeth
  • Misshapen teeth

The Value of Veneers

While porcelain veneers are similar to dental bonding, they offer much more dramatic cosmetic results in a few short dental visits. In some cases, they can give the appearance of a straighter smile, which has led many to call them “instant orthodontics.” Veneers are thin, porcelain shells that are permanently bonded to the front of teeth. The porcelain veneers are custom-created in a dental laboratory to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, and then placed at a later appointment. Understand that whitening with veneers will not work because the porcelain is resistant to the bleach. It’s best to whiten before treatment since whitening with veneers will not give the desired results. In most cases, veneers can deliver these cosmetic results:

  • Enhance the appearance of your smile
  • Correct poorly-shaped teeth
  • Fix cracked, chipped, or broken teeth
  • Reduce overcrowding of teeth
  • Fill in gaps in your smile
  • Create the look of a straighter smile

Making the Right Dental Decision

When it comes to choosing between bonding and veneers, your needs will determine your treatment. Realize that dental bonding requires less time and cost, and can correct both functional and cosmetic issues. Porcelain veneers may require a few more dental visits, but they provide a much more dramatic cosmetic change. And while veneers are generally more durable than bonding, they may need to be replaced after years of wear and tear. Ask your dentist in Longwood which procedure is best for your smile.
