What is more? Composite bonding is fast and can be completed in just one dental visit.

COMPOSITE BONDING VS COMPOSITE VENEERS

Composite bonding, Your dentist might suggest dental bonding as best option for your problem. Composite veneers involve fixing smaller problems in just a few of the teeth. At Smile Works Dental, our dental professionals are highly qualified and very capable of carrying out the job.

A composite veneer involves applying composite to any teeth or maybe the front teeth or even just one tooth. Although the veneers are made from a similar substance as the composite , the two terms differ. Note that composite and composite fillings also differ — composite fillings are known as back fillings for the back teeth and they cover all the surfaces of the tooth.

Composite veneers are very delicate, and even though they are less expensive than porcelain veneers, they should be done by an experienced dentist. The dentist must understand exactly how your bite works to ensure that the composite veneers last for a long time.

BENEFITS OF COMPOSITE BONDING

  • Saving your underlying tooth

Composite bonding does not damage the underlying tooth. The underlying tooth damage may take years to be visible. This means that any dentist can choose to fix your tooth with the intention of satisfying you now without actually caring about your future. Here at Smile Works Dental, our dentists are very interested in your dental health both presently and in the future.

  • Time-Saving

  • Pain-Free Process

The process involved with the drilling of holes in teeth and extracting already existing teeth can be painful. However, the composite material used for this process avoids this pain as it does not necessarily need the filing and drilling process. In composite bonding, the composite material is sculpted onto the teeth. Methods that involve drilling the teeth to get the veneers fitted can be risky. Due to the risk and cost, our dentists do not consider these methods suitable for the best interest of your future.

The process of drilling the teeth can be very risky for your healthy teeth because and it can increase the chances of the teeth falling out. Often, problems like root canals and implants for the teeth can be as a result of this teeth drilling process. This is why it is more advisable for the dentist to use a less invasive method when doing teeth bonding.

TAKE NOTE!

For young people who have healthy teeth, having all your teeth replaced with porcelain veneers is a terrible idea. If your dentist constantly suggests this, then you need to be careful with your dental clinic. Using porcelain veneers is obviously an easier process. Also, it costs a lot than composite bonding. Composite bonding is also a reversible process, but porcelain veneers is not reversible as it permanently damages your underlying teeth.
