Are Dental Veneers or Teeth Bonding the Right Choice for your Smile?

If your smile is less than its best, then dental veneers or tooth bonding can help you love how it looks. See which dental treatment is best for your case and concerns.

The Value of Veneers

Both dentists and patients love dental veneers for their major cosmetic benefits. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of the teeth to enhance their shape and appearance. Since porcelain veneers must be specially crafted in a dental laboratory, you will need to return to the dentist for two or three appointments. During your first visit, your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the teeth being treated to accommodate the porcelain veneer. Next, an impression of your teeth will be made and sent to the laboratory that will construct the veneers. About two weeks later, when the dental veneers are complete you will return to the dentist’s office to have them bonded to your teeth. To decide if veneers are right for you, take a look at their benefits and how they compare to teeth bonding. Dental veneers:

  • Deliver dramatic cosmetic improvements
  • Look just like natural teeth
  • Are crafted to match the color of nearby teeth
  • Are resistant to stains and discoloration
  • Can correct crooked teeth
  • Conceal poorly-shaped or stained teeth
  • Fill in gaps between teeth
  • Require more time, preparation, and dental visits
  • Cost more than teeth bonding

The Beauty of Bonding

Teeth bonding is also a dental favorite since it can repair troubled teeth, as well as fix minor cosmetic issues. Bonding involves hand-applying a composite resin onto the teeth. Your dentist will carefully select the color of the resin to closely match the shade of surrounding teeth. Dentists usually recommend bonding for restorative dental issues, as well as minor cosmetic concerns. Since the treatment requires only one visit, it is ideal for people who want a fast and easy solution. It is also less costly than porcelain veneers, which makes it attractive to many. To see if tooth bonding is the choice for you, consider these points. Bonding:

  • Treats both restorative and minor cosmetic dentistry problems
  • Protects exposed roots of the tooth
  • Conceals imperfections in teeth
  • Covers chips and cracks in teeth
  • Takes little to no preparation
  • Only requires one visit
  • Is less expensive than dental veneers
  • Is made to match the surrounding tooth color
  • Is less translucent and natural looking than dental veneers

If you’re still uncertain about which dental procedure you should select, discuss your needs and concerns with your dentist in Mount Dora. Then, let them guide you toward the treatment for you.
