Bonding and Veneers Can Help Give You the Perfect SmileWith your smile being the first thing people notice about you, it can either break or make a good impression. Many people are not fortunate enough to have a perfect smile because of genetics, poor dental hygiene or lifestyle.
Cosmetic dentistry can help in the form of dental bonding and veneers in Sarasota that provides long lasting aesthetic improvements for most people. Dental bonding involves the application of layers of composite resin on the tooth surface or edge while veneers replace the tooth’s front surface to hide any underlying flaws.
Dental bonding is a relatively easy and cheap procedure as there is no need to remove or alter any preexisting tooth tissue to improve your tooth’s appearance. Your cosmetic dentist adds resin to the tooth to change its shape, conceal flaws and replace lost tissue. It may eventually have to be restored or replaced as it can last a maximum of 10 years with proper hygiene.
The best candidates for dental bonding are those whose teeth have chips, cracks, stains, discoloration and gaps and those with misshapen or eroded teeth. As large areas of resin is quite noticeable, it’s better to use dental bonding only for smaller problems or ones that are not so conspicuous.
Veneers are an aesthetically superior option as they are made of translucent, stain resistant and customized porcelain matching your tooth. This is a more expensive and involved procedure than dental bonding but gives dramatically natural-looking results. With the right care, they can last a lifetime.
The best candidates for veneer are similar to dental bonding candidates. It can be used for larger problems that cannot be easily concealed through bonding. Veneers can also be used for treating crooked and overlapped teeth.
