Discover how easy it can be to love the look of your smile with dental veneers or teeth bonding. Learn which dental procedure will be the best for you.

Take a Bite out of Teeth Bonding

Dental bonding is ideal for repairing dental damage and making subtle cosmetic corrections. Bonding involves hand-applying a composite resin onto the teeth. The color of the resin is selected to match the shade of the surrounding teeth to provide more natural-looking results. Teeth bonding can be completed in a single dental appointment, which makes it perfect for people looking to improve their smile quickly. It is also smart for people who need the most affordable dental solution. To see if teeth bonding is the right choice for you, consider what it provides and how it compares to dental veneers:

  • Delivers restorative and minor cosmetic benefits
  • Protects the exposed roots of the tooth
  • Repairs chipped or cracked teeth
  • Covers minor imperfections in teeth
  • Demands little to no preparation
  • Only one visit required
  • Less costly than dental veneers
  • Made to closely match your tooth color
  • Less translucent and natural looking than veneers

Chew over Dental Veneers

When it comes to correcting a variety of cosmetic issues, there’s nothing better than dental veneers. Veneers are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded to the front of the teeth to enhance their appearance. They are customized in a special dental laboratory, so they call for several dental visits to complete the entire process. On your first visit, your dentist will remove a small amount of enamel from the teeth being treated to accommodate the added thickness of the porcelain veneer. Then, an impression of your teeth will be made and sent to the laboratory that will create the veneers. When the veneers are completed about two weeks later, you will visit your dentist again to have the veneers bonded to your teeth. To decide if veneers are right for you, take a look at their pros and cons compared to teeth bonding. Dental veneers:

  • Provide substantial cosmetic improvements
  • Look extremely natural
  • Are designed to precisely match surrounding tooth color
  • Are stain-resistant
  • Correct crooked teeth
  • Can conceal poorly-shaped or stained teeth
  • Fill in gaps between teeth
  • Demand more preparation, time, and dental appointments
  • Are more expensive than teeth bonding

While this guide can help you decide on treatment, you must discuss your needs with your dentist in Ocala and ask for recommendations. Then, allow your dentist’s  expertise to help you achieve a better smile.
