Face the Facts about Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are the perfect way to have a picture-perfect smile because they correct so many cosmetic dental issues. As opposed to teeth bonding which is performed on the actual tooth, teeth veneers must be crafted in a special dental laboratory and later placed on the teeth. Be aware that teeth veneers can be more expensive than bonding, but the outstanding cosmetic results they provide justify the cost. See why teeth veneers have remained a dental favorite. They can:

  • Improve the appearance of your smile
  • Deliver the most dramatic cosmetic results
  • Look extremely natural
  • Match the precise color of your other teeth
  • Correct discolored or misshapen teeth
  • Cover only the front of the tooth

Straight Talk about Porcelain Crowns

Many dentists and patients prefer porcelain crowns because they can fix both restorative and cosmetic problems. Similar to veneers, porcelain crowns must be constructed in a laboratory, so they require more dental visits than teeth bonding. They also cost about the same amount as veneers. Crowns differ from veneers because they cover the entire tooth and also offer greater restorative benefits. Porcelain crowns are ideal for numerous dental concerns because they offer the following benefits. They:

  • Provide both restorative and minor cosmetic results
  • Appear very natural
  • Match the exact shade of surrounding teeth
  • Can hide a large filling
  • Conceal a stained or poorly-shaped tooth
  • Mask a dental implant
  • Fix a chipped or broken tooth
  • Cover the whole tooth

The Truth about Teeth Bonding

If you don’t want to commit to multiple dental visits and the higher cost of crowns and veneers, then teeth bonding is for you. This procedure differs from porcelain crowns and veneers because the bonding is done directly on the tooth, instead of in a dental laboratory for later placement. Teeth bonding is recommended for these reasons:

  • Ideal for restorative dentistry
  • Most affordable option
  • Fills in gaps between teeth
  • Repairs minor cosmetic issues
  • Faster procedure than teeth veneers or crowns
  • Completed in one visit
  • Takes little preparation
