Will Veneers Or Bonding Best Repair Your Tooth?

If you chip a tooth, treatment is necessary to avoid the risk of possible complications, such as decay or even infection. However, we also understand that you want your newly restored tooth to look natural. Fortunately, we can use cosmetic procedures, such as bonding or veneers, to repair your tooth. Which option will provide the best level of restoration for your smile?

What Happens When I Damage a Tooth?

Your teeth are composed of several layers. There is the outermost layer, which is enamel, the hardest substance in the human body. Beneath that lies the dentin, which makes up a majority of the tooth’s structure. Finally, at the very center is the bundle of living tissue that keeps the tooth alive and healthy, the pulp. When you damage a tooth, you could expose the dentin, allowing bacteria to bypass enamel and cause decay. Without treatment, the decay will continue to grow and spread until bacteria reaches the pulp, which can lead to an infection. While some damage may be minor enough to not threaten a tooth’s health, we urge patients to always have their dentist examine a chipped tooth.

Dental Bonding

For minor chips, we may suggest bonding. We clean the tooth and etch the surface. We then apply a composite resin to the tooth, which we then mold as it cures under a light. Finally, we polish the tooth to ensure a more lifelike appearance. The entire procedure only takes one sitting and can protect the tooth from complications.

Dental Veneers

We may also discuss veneers. Made from porcelain, they are stronger and more lifelike than composite resin. We can sue them to correct minor chips and reshape damaged teeth. They can also mask discoloration or close gaps between the teeth, addressing multiple cosmetic issues. If you have any questions about veneers or bonding, then please contact our office today.
