Our dental office in Alpharetta can improve the way your teeth look in two fantastic ways: with porcelain dental veneers and dental bonding. If you’re not satisfied with the appearance of your teeth right now, let us give you a brand new smile. There are a variety of things that may concern you about your teeth, such as size, color, shape, or even the size of the gaps between them. But no matter if you have teeth that are chipped, broken, crooked, or discolored, we at Northbridge Dental have the solution.
Porcelain veneers are thins shells that are placed over the fronts of your teeth. The advantages of porcelain as a material are that it is a great match for your natural tooth color, and it is resistant to stains. This comes in very handy if you are a smoker, or you like to drink beverages such as coffee, tea, cola, or red wine. Bonding done at our dental office in Alpharetta uses resins that are applied to your teeth and then hardened using a special light. Resins are available in several shades, so matching tooth color will not be any problem at all.
Both veneers and bonding serve the same essential purpose. Which one is right for you? Well, dental bonding is usually less expensive and quicker to complete because all the work and preparation is done right here at our dental office in Alpharetta. In addition, the pliability of the resins makes it particularly effective when you want your teeth to appear longer, alter the appearance of their shape, or protect the root area if you have receding gums. Bonding also does not usually require that you get an anesthetic. The process is totally pain-free. Porcelain veneers are fashioned in a dental lab, which requires more time. And you will lose some natural tooth material, since your teeth need to be marginally filed down to make room for the veneers. As far as the advantages that veneers have to offer, they are more durable. You can expect them to last about 5 to 10 years. No matter which option you go with, you can be sure that you will be much happier with how your teeth look.
