Dental veneers and dental bonding make it possible to have the perfectly radiant smile you’ve always dreamed about having. If your teeth have stains, gaps, chips, eroded enamel, or a misshapen appearance, rely on two of cosmetic dentistry most popular procedures to revitalize your smile and transform your look.
What’s a veneer?
A dental veneer is a thin shell that’s custom-made to fit over your existing tooth. Although there are a few different materials used today to make veneers, including composite resin, porcelain is the most commonly used. Porcelain veneers have many advantages:
They look more natural.
They are strong and durable.
They can last up to 20 years if properly cared for.
They don’t stain easily.
Veneers are an irreversible treatment because they require your dentist to remove a minimal amount of tooth enamel to make room for the veneer. However, the enamel loss is less than that required to place a crown or cap. Your dentist will conduct a thorough oral health evaluation to determine the best option for your specific needs.
What Is Bonding?
Dental bonding is a procedure that is minimally invasive, and is an excellent alternative to putting veneers on a tooth or teeth. If you need bonding or other dental assistants in Sarasota, schedule an appointment and we can find out if dental bonding is the solution for you. Often, one visit to our office is all it takes to improve the strength and appearance of your teeth. Procedures are usually finished from thirty to sixty minutes per tooth.
Bonding is a process in which we use a composite resin which is made of special glass and plastic or made from resin that is used to repair a cracked or discolored tooth. We can match the color of your tooth so no one will know that any repair work was done. The bonding agent will adhere to the natural tooth creating a very strong connection.
