Veneers & Bonding Can Help Rejuvenate Your Smile
Veneers and bonding are two cosmetic dental procedures that are used to improve the appearance of teeth, with each service helping to address issues such as minor chips, cracks, discoloration, misshapen teeth, and gaps between teeth. At Brighter Smile in Jefferson Park, Chicago, we’ve seen the transformative effects of these cosmetic services time and time again, and we’d be happy to discuss the option that’s right for you!
What are veneers & what’s involved with having them placed?
Made most often from porcelain, veneers provide a long-lasting, natural-looking update to the color, shape, and size of teeth. The process of having them placed typically requires two appointments. One to prepare the tooth (or teeth) for the veneer(s), and the second to place the customized veneer(s) over the existing tooth. Veneers that are well cared for can last for many years!
What is bonding & what’s involved with this service?
Bonding involves applying a composite resin material directly to the tooth surface, which is shaped before being hardened with a special light. It can help address a number of issues, such as minor chips, cracks, discoloration, misshapen teeth, and gaps between teeth. It's a less expensive option than veneers and requires minimal preparation of the existing tooth structure. The process typically takes one appointment and results in a natural-looking restoration that is durable and can last for several years with diligent care.
Who is a viable candidate for these services?
Veneers and bonding are good options for many patients who are looking to improve the appearance of their smile. However, they are most effective in cases where the issue being treated is primarily cosmetic. Patients with more serious dental problems such as decay or excessive wear may not be candidates for these treatments.
