Veneers or Bonding: Which Is The Right One For You?

Always felt self-conscious about your smile? If you have just a few aesthetic flaws that need to be addressed, dental veneers and bonding are two solutions that do a great job! Here’s a little information on both treatments to help you before scheduling your consultation with our Mulgrave Dentists.

Dental Bonding

Composite bonding is a quick and affordable solution. This works by using tooth-coloured resin to subtly cover any minor flaws in your teeth. This procedure is so simple that numbing may not even be necessary! This treatment is ideal for individuals with a small chip in their teeth, uneven edges or small gaps. We wouldn’t recommend it for larger areas spanning multiple teeth as it isn’t as translucent or durable as porcelain.

Dental Veneers

If you need a more large-scale change made to the appearance of multiple front teeth, dental veneers may be the better option. These are thin coverings, made out of either porcelain or composite resin material. Dental veneers can be used to mask a wide range of dental issues, including stained teeth, chipped teeth, crooked teeth or large gaps. Since this treatment requires more detail, however, you need at least two appointments and more prep. This is a lifelong investment!
