Both composite resin dental bonding and porcelain veneers are available at Proffitt Dentistry. While they may often serve the same purpose, they are also very different procedures in both application and longevity. Dr. William Proffitt of Maryville, Tennessee, talks with patients considering both of these procedures and makes an educated decision regarding which is best for them.
Composite resin bonding is a quick, relatively inexpensive approach to cosmetic dentistry. It involves applying resin material directly onto the teeth to improve their shape, color, and appearance. The composite can last up to five years with proper care, but the end result may be less than ideal compared to porcelain veneers.
Porcelain veneers are a more expensive option that requires careful preparation of the teeth before they are applied. Veneers often offer results that look more natural and realistic than composite bonding because they’re made from ceramic material and custom-made for each patient’s mouth. If you properly care for them, porcelain veneers tend to last up to a decade or longer.
The best way to decide which of our procedures is right for you is to consult a qualified dentist who understands the pros and cons of each option, such as Dr. William Proffitt at Proffitt Dentistry. He can help you weigh the factors and make an informed choice based on your needs. With regular checkups, both solutions may give you a beautiful smile that lasts for years.
