a man considering porcelain veneersAre your teeth in need of some cosmetic work? Are they dull or chipped? You don’t have to go through life with unsightly teeth. There are options available that will enhance and revitalize your pearly whites, giving you the confidence you want and smile you deserve. While there are plenty of cosmetic solutions to choose from, you may find the best results with dental bonding or porcelain veneers in Orlando. Find out more about each service and which one is right for you.

Covering Up with Porcelain Veneers

There’s a good chance you don’t like something about your teeth. Whether they’re dull in color, chipped, uneven, or even slightly misaligned, you’ve probably thought about ways in which you can change your smile, right? Want to hear the good news? You can with porcelain veneers!

If you want to transform your smile, these thin coverings can hide any imperfections and impurities. Your cosmetic dentist in Orlando will remove a small portion of the enamel from the surface of your tooth in preparation for adhering the veneer to your natural tooth. Once your customized veneers arrive, you’ll return for a second appointment to have them cemented permanently into place.

Seal It with Cosmetic Bonding

Much like veneers, dental or cosmetic bonding can help to eliminate unsightly imperfections, as well as give you stronger teeth that will last. Using a tooth-colored composite resin, your dentist can take care of a chipped or fractured tooth, as well as make your teeth appear longer if you are unhappy with the size of your teeth.

Worried it won’t match the color of your natural teeth? You and your dentist can work to ensure the resin matches your nearby teeth, so you won’t be able to tell which tooth or teeth received treatment. The best part is that it can all be done in one visit!

Which is Right for Me?

If you’re having trouble determining which option is right for you, we strongly encourage you to talk to your dentist first and foremost. Until then, we can provide a bit more explanation to help you decide.
