Which Option is Best for You?
We are often asked this question by our patients, and the only way to know which treatment will be best for your smile is to schedule a consultation with our dentists. Not sure which option would be best for you? Learn how to choose between them.
Resin bonding is a great option and a good transition to porcelain veneers someday. While veneers might seem like the perfect fit for anyone that wants to improve their smiles, it isn’t always right for everyone. Dental bonding can quickly and painlessly repair imperfections of your teeth, instantly delivering your perfect smile. Some patients are hesitant to permanently alter the structure of their teeth, so they opt for dental bonding as a conservative alternative.
Should I Choose Porcelain Veneers or Dental Bonding?
When choosing between veneers and dental bonding or composite veneers we always advise patients the best we can so they can make an informed decision that is right for their oral goals and budget.
Veneers are made from porcelain and will usually cost much more than resin bonding. Finding the right solution for a patient’s needs and budget can be difficult but not impossible. Dental bonding is a more cost-effective treatment when compared to porcelain veneers, should you have budget constraints but still want to achieve a more aesthetically looking smile.
Veneers require multiple dental visits, try in’s and temps, there’s plenty of planning for treatment, and are manufactured at our onsite laboratory. Dental bonding or composite resin can be completed in a single visit. Your dentist will match an exact shade of resin and mold and contour the resin before curing it on the tooth to complete the treatment within a single visit.
Both veneers and dental bonding are made to blend in with the colour of your surrounding teeth, Veneers can change your teeth shape appearance, and look completely. Whilst dental bonding can fix dental issues like decayed, chipped, fractured teeth whilst keeping your most natural smile.
Dental veneers are made for permanence, lasting 10 to 25 years. While they are not invincible, porcelain is more durable. Keeping regular checks can help prolong its life span. Resin composite or dental bonding is still a strong material that can last you up to 5 years. Keeping regular dental visits can help prolong its life.
