Is Cosmetic Bonding in Your Future?

Posted on 1/15/2020 by Water's Edge Dental
Is Cosmetic Bonding in Your Future?Although some patients seem to have the potential for a more perfect smile than others, many will have cosmetic issues with their teeth at some point in their life that require restorative dental procedures. Fortunately, there are several options for dental restorations that can give your smile a makeover, including veneers, dental implants, or cosmetic bonding.

When to Choose Dental Bonding

Whether your teeth are stained or dull-looking, you have unsightly gaps or broken teeth, or misalignment is your concern, cosmetic bonding is often a cost-effective choice for correcting aesthetic issues you have with your teeth. The treatment most similar to bonding in function and form are dental veneers, which are often made of porcelain that closely matches the appearance of your natural teeth. Both dental bonding and veneers are thin coverings for your teeth, but in contrast to veneers, cosmetic bonding is performed using a resin that also matches your natural teeth well.

Cosmetic Bonding vs Veneers

Although both bonding and veneers treat cosmetic issues with your smile, each has its own merits in different situations. In the case of minor issues, dental bonding is often preferable to veneers. Popular opinion is that veneers offer better aesthetic improvement due to the natural appearance of the porcelain material and because they cover the whole tooth. Also, It can be performed as an outpatient procedure in a single appointment.
