Veneers and dental bonding are cosmetic procedures that share the same goal: mask the imperfections in teeth. But there are differences in the procedures, materials, and cost.
Veneers (Veneer Blog) are thin pieces of porcelain used to recreate the natural look of teeth, while also providing strength and resilience comparable to natural tooth enamel.? Since veneers are individually sculpted for each patient, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between a veneer and a natural tooth.
Dental bonding on the other hand is used to restore a smile in a more subtle manner.? Generally little or no tooth reduction is needed to finish this procedure.? It is a cosmetic dentistry technique commonly used to mask imperfections of the front teeth by using tooth-colored resin material.? The procedure is typically less costly than porcelain veneers but it, too, improves the aesthetic appearance of your natural teeth. Unlike veneers, however, the material used in bonding can be stained by coffee, tea, wine, or smoking. Bonding is best for minor imperfections and repairs, such as chips.
There isn’t one correct procedure for everyone.? Each mouth is different, and here at Tremont Dental Care we deliver personalized and comprehensive treatment options that are right for you.
