Articles Bonding Vs. Veneers
If you have chipped or worn teeth, you might consider veneers. They are incredibly popular and often associated with that flawless, film star smile. But they’re not the only treatment you can use to iron out imperfections. We also offer dental bonding, a simpler and cheaper alternative. If you’re considering cosmetic dental treatment, here’s some useful information to help you find the perfect solution for you.
Bonding vs veneers: which option is best for me?
Dental bonding is a single-session treatment capable of producing incredible results. This procedure, also known as composite or cosmetic bonding, is an ideal option for anyone who has minor aesthetic flaws, such as small gaps between the teeth, chips or worn edges. Using a material called dental composite, your dentist can alter the shape of the tooth. This putty-like material, which is designed to match the shade of your natural teeth, can be manipulated and moulded to fill gaps, build up worn surfaces and balance the aesthetic of the smile. Once the composite has been applied, it is set using a curing light. Any final adjustments are made once the composite is firm and then you can see your new smile.
Veneers are famed for creating stunning smiles. They are ultra-thin sheets of laminated porcelain (or an alternative ceramic material), which are shaped to fit onto your natural teeth. With veneers, we can create your dream smile and make sure you feel confident every time your teeth are in the spotlight. There are lots of different veneer treatments available and each has pros and cons. When you come in for a consultation, your dentist will run through the different systems with you and explain how they differ and what kinds of benefits they could offer you.
Veneers are bonding are different treatments, but they aim to achieve the same outcome: a healthy looking, bright and beautiful smile. Bonding is recommended for minor issues and it is much faster and cheaper than veneers. Veneers create a more dramatic transformation and they may be your preference if you’re after a completely flawless smile. To find out more, simply give us a call and book a consultation.
