Dental Bonding versus Veneers: Part Two

Pros of Veneers

  • Uniform smile immediately
  • Cover cracks and stains
  • Strong and less likely to chip or break
  • Lifetime around 15 years
  • Perfectly colored and matched to your teeth
  • Extremely life-like and translucent

Cons of Veneers

  • Permanent & Irreversible
  • Tooth enamel is removed and replaced with porcelain
  • Teeth are permanently altered

Pros of Dental Bonding

  • Fast procedure
  • Less expensive then veneers
  • Quick & easy repair if bonding chips or breaks
  • Lifetime around 10 years

Cons of Dental Bonding

  • Material used(composite resin)is not as strong as porcelain
  • Easier to chip, stain or break
  • Aesthetic limitations
  • Results depend on dentist’s artistry
  • Takes more in-clinic time
  • Harder to fix entire smile; better for a few teeth

Which One to Choose?

When there is choice between porcelain veneers and dental bonding, both are very similar in treatment. They are used to improve the appearance of your teeth and the choice ultimately depends on your specific wants and needs. It is best recommended to consult with your professional dental provider about what option is best for you. Veneers are often viewed as more of a long-term and permanent commitment, whereas dental bonding are more of a cosmetic enhancement. But, like any choice comes with pros and cons and what may or may not be beneficial towards you and your smile.
