What is Bonding and How is it Different From Veneers

Patients looking for cosmetic dentistry in Miami should look no further than Dr. Marlon Pasquier of Miami Modern Dental. Offering a number of cosmetic procedures to help improve the look of your smile, Dr. Pasquier is proud to change lives with his practice. For those who are looking to improve the appearance of their teeth, they may be torn between two popular options: dental bonding and porcelain veneers.

Dental bonding is one form of cosmetic dentistry that allows Dr. Pasquier to change the appearance of a single tooth. It is a composite resin that is used over the top of teeth to change the color, size, shape and overall appearance. It can also be used to fill in small spaces and gaps between teeth.

Veneers, on the other hand, are thin shells of porcelain that are bonded over the top of natural teeth in order to entirely change their appearance. They, too, are used to address the size, shape, color and look of a tooth. Many patients wonder how bonding is different from veneers.

Veneers are made in a laboratory, and require more than one visit in order to apply. They will oftentimes require removal of the tooth structure in order to place. While veneers last longer than dental bonding, they are also more expensive, and not everyone is a viable candidate for this type of restoration. For patients that are looking for a short-term solution to certain dental concerns, dental bonding may be the way to go. Bonding will often last anywhere from five to ten years with proper maintenance and care, and may be the way to go if you are wanting to take more time to determine if veneers are right for you. Dr. Pasquier can help you with this decision.
