Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are thin porcelain laminates placed over the front surface of your teeth to enhance their appearance. They can also correct minor gaps and imperfections. Veneers require two office visits, so do not wait until the last minute. The beauty of porcelain veneers is that you and your dentist can choose the perfect shade for a brighter, lighter smile that looks natural..
At the first appointment, a thin layer of enamel is removed from the teeth, and impressions are taken of your teeth to create veneers that will fit snugly over the teeth. Temporary veneers will be placed to protect your teeth until the porcelain veneers are ready. At the second appointment, the veneers are attached using dental cement.

Dental Bonding

Direct dental bonding covers all or a portion of the teeth you want to lighten and is applied as a soft resin, then shaped by the dentist to achieve a natural look. While the teeth may need to be roughened slightly before applying the resin, the process is reversible. As with veneers, it is possible to match the shade of your other teeth or choose a lighter, brighter shade.

Dental bonding is quicker than veneers, as the bonding is done directly in the office without waiting for a dental lab to create veneers. Dental bonding is also less expensive than veneers, but they are not quite as strong.
