Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are like a thin shell that covers your tooth, generally for the purpose of hiding a chipped tooth, one that is discolored, or a gap that may exist between teeth. Once veneers have been applied to your teeth, they will generally look much more appealing and improve your smile significantly. Most often, veneers are applied to the front teeth, because these are the ones that are most visible to observers. When you’re considering dental bonding vs veneers, you should take into account the fact that dental bonding will generally not last as long as a veneer will. It’s also true that bonding, which is accomplished by applying a resin coating over the teeth, can darken over time and lose its whiteness. Dental bonding is generally intended to provide a relatively short-term solution, for teeth that are not usually tasked with strong biting action. While less expensive than dental veneers, the dental bonding procedure is also a bit less durable in the long run. The considerations are a little different when you’re thinking about dental implants vs veneers. Both of these are intended to be long-term solutions, but dental implants may not be as suitable for the front teeth as they are for teeth toward the rear. Veneers are specifically used to produce the absolute best smile a person can have. Dental implants on the other hand, are meant to completely replace a tooth that’s missing, rather than to cover up an existing tooth. If you’re looking for the Hollywood smile, veneers are the way to go. If functionality is your primary concern, then dental implants may be a better choice for you.
