Composite Bonding vs. Porcelain Veneers

Everyone wants to have a bright, shining, healthy smile that will light up a room, but if you have chipped, cracked, discolored, or crooked teeth, you may feel uncomfortable showing off your smile. At Family Dentistry, our Mason City, IA, dentists know how important it is to have confidence in your smile, so we are here to help you restore the beauty of your teeth.

We offer two options that you may consider which will cosmetically improve your smile: composite bonding and porcelain veneers.

What Is Composite Bonding?

If there is only a small amount of tooth structure which needs to be replaced, a composite resin filling can be used to restore the look and shape of your natural teeth. The composite resin is applied and shaped to match the contour of your teeth. The overall look of composite bonding achieves a natural luster and polished appearance. Composite bonding is a versatile, conservative, and affordable way to restore your beautiful smile.

What Are Porcelain Veneers?

If you have a dental condition which affects your front teeth, porcelain veneers may be a possible option to help you restore your smile. Veneers are an excellent way to close diastemas (spaces between the teeth), restore broken/chipped teeth, covering stained or washed out fillings, whitening permanently stained or discolored teeth, and correcting uneven/crooked teeth. Porcelain veneers are a semi-translucent shell designed to fit over an existing tooth and are permanently bonded to the tooth. They are strong, durable, and long-lasting.

Which Option Is Right for Me?

When is comes to making the decision between composite bonding and porcelain veneers, the first step is to discuss both options with our Mason City, IA, dentists. At Family Dentistry, we have the experience, skills, and knowledge to assess your individual dental situation and make a recommendation that we believe is right for you. Our dentists will explain the benefits of both options and help you decide which option is the best one for your teeth.
