If you have been thinking about cosmetic dentistry, specifically porcelain veneers or dental bonding, call or send a direct message and schedule an appointment with Avenue Dental Care. Your cosmetic dentist in Everett has the experience you need.

Your dentist in Everett has the skills needed to place veneers and bond teeth for chips, cracks and stains. However, there is a difference between the two. For example, porcelain veneers are permanent while cosmetic dental bonding is not.

What is Cosmetic Dental Bonding?

Cosmetic dental bonding is something that Avenue Dental uses for chipped and cracked teeth. Your Everett cosmetic dentist might also use cosmetic dental bonding to fill small spaces between your teeth and for small cavities.

Matched to the rest of the tooth and your smile, this type of procedure is perfect if you do not want to commit to permanent procedures such as cosmetic dental crowns or porcelain veneers. Applied directly to the tooth you can literally change the shape if you like.

Made from tooth colored resin, bonding will last for quite a few years although it is not as strong as the materials used for porcelain veneers.

With that being said, you can easily have your bonding removed if you are ready to commit to something more permanent.

What are Porcelain Veneers?

Made from thin sheets of dental porcelain, veneers are custom made to fit the fronts of teeth. Because a portion of the enamel on your teeth needs to be removed, the procedure is permanent.

That is why your dentist in Everett will sometimes recommend bonding for a patient who isn’t quite sure about permanent cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Porcelain veneers are a commitment that really is worth it. If you decide to proceed, you will need two dental appointments to complete the procedure. Dental bonding only takes one dental visit to complete.

In addition to longevity, they are stronger as well. Dental bonding will resist coffee, tea and red wine stains, but is not as resistant.

Making the Decision

If you are having a tough time making a decision between porcelain veneers and dental bonding call Avenue Dental. The team can help you decide which procedure would be best for you, your teeth and your budget.
