How Dental Bonding Varies from Dental Veneers
- Posted on: Dec 15 2016
If you have chipped, cracked, or otherwise damaged teeth, then you have a few options that you can choose from to help restore your smile. As two of the most popular options, both dental bonding and dental veneers can restore your smile and help you look like a more attractive version of yourself. But what are the difference between these dental procedures and how to they compare to each other? Read on to learn more.
One of the biggest reasons why patients choose dental bonding over dental veneers is because of the price. Although dental veneers can give you a more revitalized look, they come with a hefty price tag that is typically not covered by dental insurance. However, dental bonding can fix your teeth without you having to pay too much money.
The process for dental bonding and veneers varies substantially. For instance, with dental bonding resin will be molded and added to your existing tooth to help repair cracks or chips. However, with veneers, your existing tooth is completely sanded down until it is very thin. Once sanded down, a porcelain veneer will be glued overtop.
One of the main things that both dental veneers and bonding have in common is what they can be used to fix. Both of these dental procedures can help treat:
- Cracked Teeth
- Chipped Teeth
- Severe Staining
- Uneven Teeth
- Gaps Between the Teeth
Although both dental bonding and dental veneers are both effective procedures that will give you remarkable results, veneers typically last patients longer. Because dental bonding is made of resin, it can chip and erode away after time, but Dr. Naxila Bidabadi can quickly fix it.
