Do you have a cosmetic smile problem that needs to be fixed? If so you probably have heard about porcelain veneers and dental bonding. Both are used as solutions to solving cosmetic teeth problems. Our dentist in New Hanover Township NJ is an expert in these two procedures and will be able to provide you with information about which solution will work best for you.
Our dental practice is Browns Mills Dental Center. At our dental practice we are very pleased to have many highly-qualified dentists on staff. They are: Dr. Asad S. Sadiq; Dr. Benjamin Nero; Dr. Mala Siew-Narine; Dr. Reena Goyal; Dr. Unum Rahmat; and Dr. Zaki Sadiq. When you come in to see our dentist in New Hanover Township NJ your individual smile situation will be assessed to see which treatment option is most appropriate. There is also a difference in the cost, so you may prefer one treatment option over the other, if both are possible. When you receive dental bonding or dental veneers our dentist will want to be sure that the result is aesthetically pleasing and natural-looking. Depending on your individual smile problem, one procedure may be known to provide great results while the other is known to simply not work.
Our dentist in New Hanover Township NJ will need to assess your cosmetic smile situation before he can definitively say which procedure will work better for you. A good generalization and rule of thumb may be that dental bonding may be preferable in situations where there is a very small amount of correction needed. Dental bonding will eventually fade and need touchups. Dental veneers are made of porcelain and will be able to retain their color over the years. Porcelain veneers can also be made to appear very natural and cosmetically pleasing. Dental bonding is actually used to sculpt the teeth, and this may be very difficult to do in some situations. Veneers are very useful if your teeth are severely discolored or have uneven spaces between them. Bonding can be more preferential if a tooth has tiny surface cracks in the enamel or has a tiny chip or slight gouge in it. Although our dentists are experts in providing dental bonding, sometimes it is simply more preferential to go with the dental veneers. Veneers can also cover a much greater range of problems. Dental veneers are made of porcelain and are made to cover the entire front side of a tooth. You can get dental veneers on one tooth or many teeth. Bonding over many teeth would most likely not be recommended. If you would like to see our dentist in New Hanover Township NJ, contact our office.
