Are Porcelain Veneers, Porcelain Crowns, or Bonding Best for your Smile?

If certain dental problems are bothering you, there are many ways to improve your teeth. Use these helpful hints to choose the picture-perfect treatment.

The Positives of Porcelain Veneers

Teeth veneers are commonly recommended to correct cosmetic dental concerns and improve the appearance of your overall smile. As opposed to teeth bonding which is performed on the actual tooth, veneers must be crafted in a special dental laboratory and later placed on the teeth. Porcelain veneers can also be more costly than teeth bonding due to the extra preparation and materials. But the strength and beauty of porcelain veneers are truly unmatched. See why teeth veneers are so popular:

  • Provides the most dramatic cosmetic results
  • Improves the appearance of the teeth and smile
  • Looks very natural
  • Matches the exact color of the surrounding teeth
  • Corrects discolored or misshapen teeth
  • Covers the front of the tooth

The Perks of Porcelain Crowns

Porcelain crowns are another top dental treatment because they can repair both functional and cosmetic concerns. Similar to veneers, porcelain crowns must be constructed in a laboratory, so they require more dental visits than teeth bonding. They also cost about the same amount as veneers. The main differences between crowns and veneers are that crowns cover the entire tooth and are ideal for restorative, as well as minor cosmetic procedures. Porcelain crowns are recommended for many dental issues because they offer the following:

  • Provide both restorative and minor cosmetic results
  • Look very natural
  • Made to match the color of your natural teeth
  • Can repair a broken tooth
  • Can hide a large filling
  • Conceal a stained or poorly-shaped tooth
  • Mask a dental implant
  • Cover the whole tooth

The Benefits of Bonding

Teeth bonding is another option for correcting dental problems. This procedure differs from porcelain crowns and veneers because the bonding is done directly on the tooth, instead of in a dental laboratory for later placement. Bonding is recommended for these reasons:

  • Ideal for restorative dentistry
  • Requires very little preparation
  • Least costly option
  • Fills gaps between teeth
  • Corrects minor cosmetic issues
  • Faster procedure than teeth veneers or crowns
  • Completed in one visit
