What is the difference between porcelain veneers and dental bonding?
Are you living with chipped or broken teeth? Maybe you've tried eliminating stains on your teeth with little to no success? Perhaps your teeth are irregularly shaped? Did you know that cosmetic dental treatments in Winston-Salem, NC like porcelain veneers or dental bonding can get rid of these imperfections? But what's the difference? Which treatment is right for you?
Porcelain veneers utilize micro-thin layers of porcelain that cover your teeth, while dental bonding adds composite resin to your teeth to eliminate imperfections. Both treatments can improve and enhance your smile in different ways.
If it's a "Hollywood" smile you've dreamed of, veneers are your best solution as they can be used to completely redesign your smile. Porcelain veneers change the shape, shade, and size of your teeth to give you a more uniform and beautiful smile.
If you'd like to enhance your smile, but the cost is a concern, dental bonding can be a great solution. Typically less expensive than porcelain veneers, bonding can eliminate some of the same imperfections during one short visit to your Winston-Salem cosmetic dentist.
The best way to determine which procedure might be right for you is to schedule a cosmetic evaluation with Dr. Tibbs. He will discuss your goals and ideas about your smile with you and create a plan to help you achieve your dream smile without breaking your budget.
