Did you know that dental bonding and veneers are common cosmetic dental procedures used for small repairs and can be great options for improving your smile. But are the differences between the two? Well, today our team is going to give you a brief look at dental bonding and veneers to help in your decision.

Veneers are thin pieces of porcelain or plastic that become glued to the front of your teeth by your dentist. Typically veneers are used for teeth that are discolored, chipped or misshaped. Veneers come in two types: porcelain and composite. Porcelain veneers typically last 10-15 years while composite lasts for 5-7 years.

Dental veneers can cost up to $2,500, depending on the material you end up wanting to use for your tooth restoration. Be sure to consult with your dentist and insurance company before making a decision.

Dental bonding, on the other hand, generally takes only one appointment to complete and costs significantly less that veneers. This method can help restore a chipped tooth and fill gaps between teeth.

No matter what your decision is, your teeth shouldn’t have to suffer. Please give our office a call today to schedule your appointment by calling 704.987.2277!
