Bonding and veneers are cosmetic dental procedures that help treat cracked, chipped, and discolored teeth. Dental bonding is the process of applying tooth-colored resin to the teeth that are then hardened with a special light. Veneers are custom-made restorations that are cemented on the front surface of the teeth.
At Broadmoor Dental in Colorado Springs, Colorado, our doctors specialize in cosmetic and restorative dental treatments and procedures and know all about how they compare. To learn more about what these procedures have in common and what sets bonding and veneers apart, keep reading.
Here is a closer look at the differences and similarities between bonding and veneers:
The Objective of the Procedure
Both bonding and veneers serve the same purpose. They help cover tooth imperfections. However, each procedure has its own characteristics and is suited to a specific set of dental issues. If you book an appointment, our dentists at Broadmoor Dental will be able to explain what procedure best suits your needs.
Both bonding and veneers are made to match the color of your teeth and look natural. However, veneers are more likely to stand the test of time as they are stain-resistant, while bonding may stain and change color in the long run.
Veneers offer maximum durability. If proper aftercare is provided, veneers can last for 8-12 years.
Bonding is also a durable solution if properly cared for. This procedure’s durability depends on how well it is protected against too much pressure that could crack or chip the bonding material.
The cost of veneers depends on the material they are made from and the number of veneers the patient requires. Porcelain veneers are more expensive, while composite veneers are more affordable. Bonding is done using resin which is an economical material.
Bonding and veneers are painless, effective, and durable cosmetic dental procedures that help serve the same purpose. However, each patient’s needs are unique. A proper dental check-up at Broadmoor Dental can help you learn more about the benefits of each procedure and determine which one is right for you.
