Which Is Better: Dental Bonding or Porcelain Veneers?


Damaged and discolored teeth, along with other perceived dental flaws, can significantly impact the appearance of your smile and your confidence. Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as dental bonding and porcelain veneers, can easily correct cracks, chips, gaps, stains, discoloration, and/or misalignment. These procedures can even improve the appearance of worn or uneven teeth. But which of these cosmetic treatments is the best option for rejuvenating your smile?

Dental bonding is an easy and effective way to quickly fix a wide variety of dental imperfections. Using a composite resin, Dr. Thomas J. Strub can restore, repair, and reshape the tooth to blend with the surrounding teeth. Dental bonding is often ideal for less extensive tooth repairs and may provide a more cost-efficient alternative to porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers offer results that are both durable and natural-looking. This procedure uses thin shells of porcelain to cover the front surface of the tooth and conceal any cosmetic concerns. Porcelain veneers are often considered the most realistic and longest lasting solution for tooth imperfections.

During the consultation process, Dr. Strub will perform an oral exam, review your cosmetic goals, and help you decide which procedure can best achieve the results you desire.
