We want each and every one of our patients to attain that perfect smile that they have always wanted. Two of the easiest ways to do this, is through dental veneers and dental bonding. Easily shape your mouth, correct your smile, and make it appear whiter utilizing these two oral techniques. Dental veneers are becoming more popular as time goes on, and so is dental bonding. Do your best to educate yourself on these two useful ways of improving your smile.
Dental veneers are a thin porcelain shell that is placed over the top of your existing teeth. This allows you to essentially construct a new smile, shaping it and coloring it however you like. If you dislike the size, shape, or color of your teeth, dental veneers can correct it.
The process includes filing down the enamel of your existing teeth slightly so that the professionally-made veneers can fit perfectly on top of them without making them protrude at all. The end result is a beautiful, natural-looking smile. Best of all, dental veneers do not need to be removed.
Veneers, however, are slightly more fragile than your natural teeth. This means that you need to be careful when chewing hard foods.
Dental bonding is a very versatile procedure. It can be used to fill a cavity, fix a chipped tooth, or even correct discolored teeth. The procedure involves bonding a certain amount of resin to your teeth to achieve the desired effect. If your tooth is chipped, the resin will be bonded to the tooth in a way that makes the chip disappear. If your teeth are yellow, the resin can be simply painted on top of your teeth to give them the color that you desire. Dental bonding can also be used to widen your teeth and close gaps.
