How do Bonding and Veneers Differ?

To figure out their basic differences, our dental experts at Kingwood, TX, will explain the details of these two cosmetic procedures to you.

However, there are key differences between veneers and bonding, such as:

  • Bonding:  This is a cosmetic dentistry technique that consists of adhering a tooth-colored material over the chipped, cracked or otherwise affected tooth. The desired shape of your tooth is cut out after placing the composite and then the material is made to harden, using a ray of light. However, only small dental flaws such as a slightly broken or chipped tooth, small gaps in between the teeth, discolored teeth and teeth with little irregularities in shape are resolved using such a technique
  • Veneers:  These are dental restorations, usually made of porcelain and are made up of wafer-like thin material which is attached to the front portion of your tooth. In order to place veneers therefore, only a thin portion of the tooth enamel is required to be removed. However, veneers are not effective in covering the edges of your tooth.

Which veneers would you go for?

While at our office at Kingwood, TX, you will find that veneers come in two variants  - porcelain and composite resin ones. Usually,  porcelain veneers are the more preferred type as they resist food stains better as well as more efficiently mimic the light reflecting properties of the teeth to make them look brighter!
