Cosmetic dentistry is the practice of replacing and fixing teeth. It can help whiten teeth, fix chipped teeth, discolored teeth, and stained teeth. You will be able to achieve a comfortable and confident smile. The common ways of getting makeovers include dental bonding and veneers. We are going to look at both with their advantages.
They are thin water-like film made of porcelain placed on the teeth. They are shaped according to the teeth of the patient and they blend with the rest of the teeth. They can be used to hide discolored teeth as well as injured teeth. They are painless procedures that require few visits to the dentist to be able to identify the one that fits.
Dental bonding is a procedure that requires the preparation of teeth surfaces' resin is then added to the teeth. It is then given time to dry and then it is shaped to the desired look. They are not a permanent procedure and cannot last forever. The durability of the bonds depends on how they are maintained by the patient. It is a quick procedure that requires one visit to the dentist.
Making a Choice
Veneers are more expensive than dental bonding. The varying cost is due to the porcelain material used in veneers. They are also permanent unlike dental bonding, veneers are resistant to stain which is not the case for dental bonding. They may stain and become darker with time. Porcelain veneers are more durable than bonding. They are made to last for up to 25 years. A combination of both veneers and dental bonding is the best way forward depending on the problem. If you are looking to whiten your teeth, try professional whitening. If it does not work, then veneers are your best choice. Dental bonding is best for chipped, broken teeth and teeth gaps in the mouth.
When making the choice on which ones to use consult with your dentist. Visit our offices for professional guidance on the cosmetic path to follow.
