  • Dental bonding vs. veneers—which one should I get?

    Choosing between dental bonding and veneers depends on several factors, including the condition of your teeth, your cosmetic goals, and your budget.

    Dental Bonding: Ideal for minor corrections, dental bonding involves applying a tooth-colored resin to the tooth’s surface, which is then shaped and hardened with a light. It’s less expensive and requires less tooth enamel removal than veneers.

    Veneers: Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite material covering the teeth’ front surface, offering a more dramatic transformation. They’re a better option for significant discoloration, size discrepancies, or larger gaps and can last longer than bonding.

    Our team can help you decide the best option based on a comprehensive evaluation of your dental health and aesthetic goals.

  • What is gum contouring?

    Gum contouring is a cosmetic dental procedure that reshapes the gum line to improve the appearance of your smile. It can correct issues such as uneven gum lines or the appearance of a “gummy” smile, where too much gum tissue covers the teeth. Using precision techniques, we can gently sculpt the gum line to reveal more of your teeth, creating a more balanced and attractive smile. This procedure can be performed alone or in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments for a complete smile makeover.

  • How long does dental bonding last?

    Dental bonding is a durable cosmetic treatment, with results that can last from 3 to 10 years, depending on care and lifestyle factors. To extend the life of your dental bonding, practice good oral hygiene, avoid biting on hard objects, and see us regularly for checkups and cleanings. Factors like smoking, coffee consumption, and teeth grinding can affect the longevity of your bonding, so we recommend taking steps to minimize these impacts. Regular dental visits allow us to monitor your bonding and make any necessary touch-ups to keep your smile looking its best.
