At Blue Bird Dentistry, our Fredericksburg cosmetic dentist performs a variety of procedures to enhance the appearance of your smile.
Porcelain veneers and dental bonding both help patients create attractive smiles, and they can cover a variety of tooth flaws to transform the appearance of your teeth. However, there are differences in how and when dentists use dental veneers and dental bonding.
Dental Bonding vs. Dental Veneers
Dental bonding is made with a composite resin material that blends in with the tooth, and we can use dental bonding to reshape a tooth, fix a chipped tooth, and more. Dental bonding is ideal for covering many minor tooth flaws quickly and easily. It’s also an affordable cosmetic service. However, dental bonding materials often don’t last as long as veneers.
We generally prefer to use dental bonding when a single tooth is involved.
On the other hand, veneers often provide us with an excellent method for covering tooth flaws on multiple teeth, totally transforming the patient’s smile. And they’re a longer-lasting cosmetic change, which is why we often use veneers over bonding materials during cosmetic makeovers. We want the patient’s new smile to stay intact for as long as possible.
The method we use to cover your smile flaws will depend on your unique needs and smile goals, which Dr. Mohamed Elnahass will discuss with you during your cosmetic consultation in our Fredericksburg, VA dental office.
