Porcelain veneers and cosmetic bonding offer a way to change the size, shape, and colour of your teeth. If more conservative options such as whitening and braces are not able to deliver the desired aesthetic results, veneers and or bonding are great options to customize your smile. Porcelain veneers are very thin “shells” which can be bonded to the front of your teeth, and offer more advanced aesthetics and greater durability than cosmetic bonding. Cosmetic bonding is very similar to porcelain veneers, however, composite resin (white filling material) is built directly on the tooth in lieu of the porcelain. Cosmetic bonding is more affordable, and requires less tooth removal. Usually cosmetic bonding can be done in one appointment, and porcelain veneers can be completed in two appointments.
