Dental bonding is a plastic tooth colored (composite) resin material that is molded onto your teeth and hardened with a blue light. It is usually done in one visit. Little tooth reduction and usually no anesthesia is required. The disadvantages of dental bonding are:
- They stain over time, may chip and may need to be replaced more often.
- Porcelain veneers are thin layers of stacked porcelain that are fabricated in the lab and bonded to teeth.
- It usually takes 2 visits. Little tooth reduction and some anesthesia are required.
- Porcelain veneers are stronger than dental bondings and less prone to staining.
