Bonding Vs. Veneers: Understanding Your Options

Dental Bonding beaumont tx | Dr. Joel Smith DDS In a perfect world, money would grow on trees, climate change would be non-existent, and it would always be a comfortable 80 degrees. However, because there is no such thing, you have to deal with some imperfections in your life that you just wish would disappear. And although you can’t make everything in your life perfectly perfect, if you have a smile that is a bit disheveled or teeth that are chipped, you can get them fixed with either dental bonding or veneers. Read on to learn more about these options and learn what may be the right option for you.

Dental Bonding

The main benefit that people enjoy with dental bonding is the fact that it is more affordable than other options like veneers. As such, however, it doesn’t last as long as veneers. By taking a resin material, applying it to your teeth, and letting it cure with a light, dental bonding can help fix a variety of dental imperfections like spaces in between teeth, cracked or chipped teeth, and can even be used in conjunction with some fillings.

Dental Veneers

As a more permanent, but more expensive option, dental veneers involve filing down your existing tooth to a small point. Once your tooth is filed down, a porcelain dental veneer will be glued to your existing tooth. Used to help fix misaligned, chipped, cracked, or yellowed teeth, dental veneers can completely transform your mouth. As another benefit of dental veneers, they can be matched to your other teeth including the size, shape, and color.

Dental bonding and dental veneers can help fix your damaged teeth in virtually no time at all. If you would like to perfect your imperfect smile, contact Dr. Joel Smith today to learn more about your options.
