There are two common cosmetic dental treatments that are used to improve your smile. Dental bonding and dental veneers can both help with the appearance of your teeth if you feel self-conscious about them. Sometimes small repairs are needed for improving your smile, especially if you have any cracked or chipped teeth. Choosing between dental bonding and dental veneers can be difficult. Here is some information about both dental treatments that may help you:
A dental veneer is a custom-made, thin shell that covers the surface of your tooth. Your dentist designs the shells specifically for you and your personal cosmetic needs. Whether it’s a discolored tooth, chipped tooth, cracked tooth, gaps in teeth, or slightly misaligned teeth, dental veneers can help hide those flaws to give you a flawless smile. Veneers can typically last anywhere from 5-10 years and can be applied by your dentist.
Dental bonding can be used to restore a cracked or chipped tooth. It can also be used to fill the gaps between your teeth. However, they do stain easier than veneers, so you may need to avoid certain drinks. Dental bonding can also be less expensive than veneers; however, they may need to be replaced sooner.
Whichever you choose, dental veneers or dental bonding, your dentist will be able to assist you. Talk to your dentist about the best option for your specific needs. Call 757-587-6399 and schedule an appointment today so you can start smiling with confidence today.
