I literally had the best dental experience in my life! I felt no pain whatsoever with the filling I had to get last week in Dr. Pruce's office. Also, Dr. Pruce and everyone I've interacted with in the office are so kind and really personable.

What is the difference between porcelain veneers and dental bonding?

Thanks to advances in materials and technology, we now have many options for addressing cosmetic dental flaws. Both porcelain veneers and dental bonding are popular treatments, but they work very differently.

 

A veneer is a thin shell of porcelain that covers a tooth and closely resembles the appearance of dental enamel. Since veneers conceal a tooth, they can be used to correct flaws like chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. When we place a veneer, we remove a thin layer of your dental enamel and then take impressions of the teeth.

 

A dental lab creates your customized veneers, which we then bond to the surfaces of your teeth. Veneers are durable, and with proper care, conscientious oral hygiene, and routine dental visits, it’s possible for veneers to last 15 years or longer.

 

Another procedure Dr. Pruce offers is dental bonding. He uses tooth-colored filling material to expertly build up portions of a tooth to alter its size and shape to create a more pleasing appearance. The process is fast, and we can often treat several teeth during one appointment. Bonding is an excellent solution, but you should know that we will have to repeat the procedure more frequently than we would with veneers.

 

If you are thinking about altering your smile, but aren’t sure where to start, please call us at our Washington dental office. We will be happy to arrange a consultation so we can learn what it is you would like to change and how we can help.
