Can Bonding Look Natural or Will it Stand Out?

Can Bonding Look Natural or Will it Stand Out?Dental bonding is a great way to improve the aesthetics of your smile. Generally done in a single visit to our office, it can repair small chips, cracks, stains and even the shape or size of your teeth.

Many patients ask us if this procedure makes their teeth look fake, or stand out from their other teeth, and the answer is 'Well, that depends.' Let us take a look and see what the differences are between veneers and dental bonding and when each are recommended.

Dental Bonding Vs. Veneers

Veneers are different, yet similar to dental bonding. With veneers, they can be used to improve the appearance of an entire smile, all of the teeth are prepared and a 'shell' is bonded to the front surface of the tooth. With dental bonding, we like to use it for smaller aesthetic adjustments or repairs. We use a tooth colored resin that we bond to the surface of your tooth. Custom made to exactly match your natural teeth in color and size, the resin actually becomes part of your tooth and looks completely natural.

Just like veneers, and your natural teeth, dental bonded teeth can become discolored over time if special care is not taken. Avoiding staining them by reducing (or eliminating) such things as coffee, tea, tobacco products, alcohol and soft drinks. Consuming these can stain your bonded teeth at a different rate from your natural teeth, and this can cause your teeth to appear unnaturally colored.

Both solutions are common for treating cosmetic imperfections that you may have with your teeth, and depending on the level of imperfection and the degree of repair that you're requesting dental bonding is a great choice.
