Dental bonding can be used as an alternative to dental veneers. It is used when teeth are chipped, cracked or discolored.
Bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses resin to conceal chips and cracks in teeth. Your dentist will prepare the tooth, apply bonding liquid, and then smooth and polish the resin for a natural look.
Dental bonding vs. veneers—which one should I get?
Dental bonding and veneers can both be used to fix broken or decayed teeth or close gaps between teeth. Dental bonding is used in a similar way to veneers, but only covers a portion of the tooth’s surface. Both procedures can help improve your smile and adjust the space between teeth, depending on the extent of the damage. But while veneers require more time and are more expensive than dental bonding, they provide a longer-term effect, ensure a stronger solution and are a better-lasting solution overall.Learn More About Dental Veneers
How long does dental bonding last?
Dental bonding is a material that can be applied to your teeth to fix imperfections. It won’t last as long as veneers, but if you are taking proper care of your teeth (avoiding hard candy, ice cubes and similar substances that can break down and crack the composite material), the application should last approximately ten years.
What is gum contouring?
Gum contouring, or gum reshaping, is a cosmetic procedure that can improve the appearance of your smile. To accomplish this, we remove some of the gum tissue and shape it to show off more of your natural teeth.
