There are lots of ways to improve our smile and oral hygiene and we should be aware of the difference between these treatments. We bring up a lot of questions to our dentists, like, are composite veneers the same as bonding? The dentist should be able to provide us with clear and concise details about this.
The material used for composite veneers and bonding is the same which is the composite resin. The only difference about them is how they are applied to your tooth. Bonding normally covers a part of your tooth whilst composite veneer covers the entire surface of your tooth. Both of these are used to improve the aesthetic of your tooth.
There’s another way of improving the aesthetics of your teeth as well and that is porcelain veneers. So to differentiate the composite veneers and porcelain veneers, first we should know what these are.
Porcelain veneer is a procedure where the teeth is roughly shaped and the veneers are glued on top of your original teeth while the composite veneer is a simple procedure where a dentist applies a tooth coloured resin on your damaged tooth. Based on the definition, if you have a minor teeth problem then a bonding is a perfect option for you.
With a composite or porcelain veneer, you have more shade selection to make your tooth look more natural. If you have decided to proceed with veneer procedure, you also need to know the advantages and disadvantages of it like, can composite veneers be replaced? How long do composite veneers last?
So once the veneers are applied, your only option now is to either go back to your natural teeth or change it to a porcelain veneer. One of the advantages of a composite veneer is its cost, the average amount is between $495 up to $1100 and with this amount, it could last up to 5 years.
