When it comes to deciding between veneers and composite bonding, it ultimately depends on your specific dental needs and preferences.
Composite bonding is a minimally invasive treatment that involves applying a tooth-coloured resin material to the surface of the tooth. It can be a great option for minor cosmetic issues such as small chips, gaps, or discolouration. Since no natural tooth structure is removed during the procedure, it is a reversible treatment.
On the other hand, veneers are custom-made shells that cover the front surface of the teeth to improve their appearance. They are a great option for more significant cosmetic issues such as larger chips, cracks, stains or misalignment that cannot be easily addressed with composite bonding. Veneers require some removal of the natural tooth structure, and the procedure is irreversible.
Overall, if you have minor cosmetic issues and prefer a more conservative treatment approach, composite bonding may be the better option for you. If you have more significant cosmetic issues and are looking for a longer-lasting solution, veneers may be the better choice. Your dentist can help you determine which treatment option is best for your specific needs.
