Discover how Dental Veneers and Bonding can Save your Smile

Is your smile less than its best? Deal with your dental dilemma with either porcelain veneers or bonding. See which is right for you.

Top Two Treatments for a Picture-Perfect Smile

Dental veneers and bonding are often recommended by dentists and requested by patients seeking a better smile. The bonding materials are a tooth-colored, composite resin. Dental veneers can be made of resin or porcelain. Both of these treatments address many of the same dental problems, including:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Minor cosmetic cracks in teeth
  • Tooth misalignment
  • Poorly-spaced teeth
  • Misshapen teeth
  • Narrow teeth
  • Short teeth
  • Dark discoloration
  • Staining
  • Tooth enamel erosion

While dental veneers and bonding share several similarities, they also differ in terms of treatment. Understanding their distinctions can help you make the right dental decision.

The Value of Veneers

Dental veneers are mostly used to conceal cosmetic concerns and correct major dental damage. Porcelain veneers are very thin layers of porcelain that are specially made to fit over the front of your teeth. Since they are custom-crafted for your smile in a special dental laboratory, they may require the removal of a small amount of tooth enamel to ensure a natural look. Yet as a result, they appear much more natural than dental bonding, especially when used over a series of several teeth or to enhance your entire smile. Porcelain veneers are also very strong and can last for many years. If your dental problems are either cosmetic in nature or extremely extensive, then dental veneers may be better for you.

The Benefits of Bonding

Dental bonding is commonly used to make minor dental repairs and correct small cosmetic flaws in teeth. While porcelain veneers are created in a laboratory and later placed on the teeth, bonding is performed directly on the teeth and then set with a special UV light. This process eliminates the need to remove any tooth enamel. The results are natural looking and durable. Many people prefer dental bonding because it is more affordable and less time-consuming than the process of porcelain veneers. If your dental issues are minor or you’re looking to spend less time and money on treatment, then dental bonding may be perfect for you.

Discuss your concerns and needs with your dentist in Atlanta to determine whether dental veneers or bonding will best suit your smile.
