Are Dental Veneers or Bonding Best for your Smile?

If you’re unhappy with your smile, learn how dental veneers and bonding can improve how you look and feel. Use this expert guide to help you choose the perfect treatment.

Two Ways to Have Teeth that Make you Smile

When it comes to improving your teeth, both bonding and veneers can make a dramatic dental difference. 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:

  • Staining
  • Discolored teeth
  • Misalignment issues
  • Widely-spaced teeth
  • Chips
  • Cosmetic cracks
  • Poorly-shaped teeth
  • Short teeth
  • Narrow teeth
  • Tooth enamel erosion

As you can see, dental veneers and bonding offer many of the same benefits. Yet they also are very different and treat distinct dental needs. Understanding what each can do allows you to choose the proper treatment.

Difference of Dental Veneers

Veneers are most commonly recommended to treat a range of cosmetic concerns and significant dental issues. Porcelain veneers are very thin layers of porcelain specially made to fit over the front of your teeth. Because they are custom-crafted for your smile in a dental laboratory, they may require the removal of a small amount of tooth enamel to fit properly and look natural. Yet as a result, they appear much more natural than dental bonding, especially when used over a series of several teeth or to improve your entire smile. Porcelain veneers are also very strong and can last for many years. If your dental issues are largely cosmetic in nature or if they are extremely extensive, then dental veneers may be better for you.

Basics of Bonding

Dental bonding is ideal for minor concerns and smaller dental repairs. While porcelain veneers are created in a laboratory and later placed on the teeth, bonding is performed directly on the teeth and then cured with a special UV light. This process does not require removing any tooth enamel. The results are durable and have a natural look. Dental bonding is preferred by many people because it is more affordable and less time-consuming than the process of porcelain veneers. To fix small dental problems with little time and expense, dental bonding may be a more appropriate choice for you.

Ask your dentist in Fayetteville whether dental veneers or bonding will work better for you. Express your concerns and explain your needs to work together toward a better smile.
