Dental veneers and dental bonding are two of the most popular cosmetic dentistry procedures. Both are effective, yet both can serve different purposes depending on your specific needs.
To help you understand which procedure is best for you, we’ve provided the following information. We also encourage you to come in for a consultation appointment with Dr. Param Gill so the two of you can determine the best course of action for restoring your smile.
Veneers are a very popular way to fix a smile that has larger cracks or chips in the teeth. Veneers are simply wafer-thin shells that sit on the top surface of your teeth. They’re custom-made to fit your teeth, but they do take a few weeks to make.
Veneers also come with the benefit of immediately whitening your teeth. Once on your teeth, you’ll have a brand new white smile that you can maintain with good oral health practices. So if you have deep enamel stains in addition to chips or cracks in your teeth, veneers may be your best bet.
Bonding is one of the most affordable cosmetic dentistry options, and barring any complications, can usually be completed in just one appointment.
Bonding is a pretty simple procedure. Dr. Param Gill prepares the surface of your teeth by roughing it up a bit so that the pliable resin he uses for bonding adheres well to your teeth. Then, the resin is molded to look just like the rest of your teeth. It’s then polished, colored, and cured, and you can walk out of the office with any chips or fractures taken care of in the same appointment.
