If a patient has a chipped or stained tooth, teeth bleaching or fillings aren't enough to improve the appearance of the teeth. Ray Lawson Dentistry works with the patients to help them explore the right option for themselves. Tooth veneers and tooth bonding have similar outcomes and involve a thin layer of material onto a tooth to cover a chipped or a damaged tooth. These techniques are a great option for a white tooth as well when bleaching isn't recommended.
Veneers don't stain easily and are made of porcelain, lasting about 15 years. Veneers are placed on the existing tooth enamel and applied using adhesive. Bonding costs significantly less than veneers and can last up to 5 years. However, the resin used for bonding is more porous than the porcelain, making it more susceptible to staining.
To find out which process is the best option for you, schedule a consultation with Ray Lawson Dentistry.
