Cosmetic Dentistry Q&A
Are you interested in cosmetic dental care, but have questions about your treatment options? Read the answers to common questions many of our patients have about cosmetic dentistry:
How do porcleain veneers compare to dental bonding?
Although dental veneers and tooth bonding treatments are similar, they offer different benefits for patients. Dental veneers are thin ceramic or composite shells that are bonded to the front of the teeth. Tooth bonding uses a composite resin material that is shaped onto prepared teeth. Bonding treatment is best for small cosmetic issues such as chips in the tooth enamel. Compared to tooth bonding, porcelain or composite dental veneers offer a longer-lasting treatment. They also treat a wider area of the tooth, conforming to the shape and size of a natural tooth.
Can you treat deep tooth stains?
Yes, if you have discolored teeth that do not react well to professional teeth whitening treatment, we may recommend bonding or veneers. Intrinsic stains, or stains that are caused within the tooth, often require other cosmetic treatments for a whiter smile. Porcelain or composite dental veneers may be used to brighten the appearance of teeth. Even if you have a single discolored tooth, a porcelain veneer will blend in with the rest of the smile.
How can veneers address misaligned teeth?
Dental veneers enhance the aesthetics of the smile for patients with slightly misaligned or crooked teeth. They can cover single misaligned teeth to create a more uniform look. However, we will recommend orthodontic treatment for patients who have moderate to severe tooth misalignment.
