Treat Troubled Teeth with Dental Veneers or Bonding

Are you struggling with an unattractive smile? Don’t despair when you can repair any dental damage with either bonding or dental veneers. Learn how to get a smile that makes you very happy.

Two Options to Suit your Smile Concerns

Dentists agree that both bonding and dental veneers are two of the most effective ways to enhance your 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:

  • Dental misalignment
  • Poorly-spaced teeth
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Badly-shaped teeth
  • Narrow teeth
  • Short teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Staining
  • Eroded tooth enamel

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.

A Closer Look at Bonding

To fix minor dental flaws and repair cosmetic concerns with teeth, dental bonding is the ideal option. Dental bonding is hand-applied to the teeth and then cured with a powerful light. In contrast, porcelain veneers are created in a laboratory and later applied over the teeth. With bonding, there’s no need to remove any tooth enamel. Bonding is also durable and looks rather natural. 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.

A Better View of Veneers

If your dental issues are primarily cosmetic or your teeth are badly damaged, then veneers are right for your needs. These porcelain veneers are very thin layers of porcelain that are made especially to fit over the front of your teeth. Custom-designed in a special dental laboratory, they are later applied over your teeth, so they may call for removing a small amount of tooth enamel for a proper fit and 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 whole 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.

To choose the right treatment, talk to your dentist in Owings Mills about your needs and concerns to find your smile solution.
