Bonding or Veneers?
Are bonding and veneers the same thing? At first glance, these treatments seem similar, but there are key differences.
Bonding is more affordable than veneers.
Bonding can be completed in just one appointment.
For more significant changes, veneers may be the better choice.
How it works
After preparing the resin accordingly, the dentist will carefully paint a thin layer of the substance on the surfaces of your teeth. Because the material is so thin, your teeth don’t need to be filed down like they do when getting dental veneers, directly layering on the resin is sufficient. Once the dentist reaches all the spots, he or she will dry the resin with an ultraviolet light or a laser, causing the resin to bond with the tooth. The result is a tooth with resin directly attached to it. Dental bonding is an irreversible and permanent cosmetic dentistry procedure.
If you’re interested in dental bonding or if you have more questions about the procedure, make sure to ask one of our dentists about it. At Mint Dental Alaska, we’re always happy to help you with whatever cosmetic procedure you’ve been considering.
Dental bonding often lasts 4-8 years or more before needing a touchup treatment.
No. Dental bonding does not affect the natural enamel of your teeth.
Composite resin is almost as durable as your natural tooth enamel. To avoid damage, just continue with proper brushing, flossing, and routine dental visits.
We’ll make sure the bonding material matches the natural color of your teeth. However, bonding material does not respond to teeth whitening treatments.
