How To Get A New Smile For The New Year

Are you self-conscious due to the appearance of your front teeth but are unsure of which treatment would give the results you desire? You are in luck, because we offer two wonderful choices that can improve a number of imperfections with your smile. Read on to learn more about the two treatment options we offer.

What to Know About Porcelain Veneers and Dental Bonding

When patients are looking to improve their front teeth, we typically recommend one of two options — porcelain veneers and dental bonding.

If you are looking to make improvements to your smile without a complex, lengthy procedure as found with dental crowns, porcelain veneers are an excellent solution. Veneers are ultra-thin porcelain shells that are permanently attached to the front of the teeth. Veneers can improve the size, shape, color, and placement of the teeth.

Dental bonding is a composite material that matches the color of your teeth and can fix many of the same imperfections as porcelain veneers. The composite material is placed on the teeth and molded to the proper shape and position. It is then trimmed and polished for a beautiful result.

Which Option is Better?

Both treatments offer benefits depending on your needs and desired result. Determining which option is best for you will be based on your needs. If the repair or change you are looking to make is minor or needed on a small area, dental bonding will be the choice for you. If the structure of your tooth is in question, we would recommend a porcelain veneer. It not only improves the appearance, but it also improves the structure and function of the tooth. Although more costly, porcelain veneers are also more durable and can last for many years.

Choosing either option will give you beautiful results that will blend in with your natural teeth.
