- Versatile: Like porcelain veneers, dental bonding can take care of many kinds of flaws, including discolouration, chips, gaps, cosmetic cracks, and more all within a single treatment.
- Low cost: Compared to other cosmetic procedures like porcelain veneers, bonding is one of the least expensive options available.
- Little time commitment: Unlike crowns and veneers, which require more time to prepare at a dental lab and a second visit to place them, the entire bonding procedure can be completed in a single visit.
- Low invasiveness: Bonding requires minimal enamel removal. This means that if you ever change your mind about treatment, the composite resin can easily be removed without permanent damage to your teeth. Porcelain veneers, however, cause irreparable changes to the front of your teeth.
- Convenience: Frequently patients get multiple teeth bonded in one short appointment.
- Staining: Although you can achieve excellent results with bonding, the resin does absorb stains over time. If you are looking for treatment that is much more stain resistant, crowns or veneers may be the right option for you. However good oral hygiene can reduce the risk of staining and increase longevity of these restorations.
- Durability: Crowns and veneers are also more resistant to breaking and usually last much longer than bonding, which typically needs to be replaced every 10 years.
