The look of teeth can be improved by placing a veneer or doing composite bonding.
Veneers are wafer-thin, custom-made shells that cover the front surface of teeth. Bonded to the front of the teeth, changing their colour, shape, size or length, veneers can be made from porcelain or resin composite. Veneers offer a conservative approach to changing a tooth’s colour or shape compared to crowns, but the process is not reversible.
Composite bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-coloured resin is applied and hardened with a special light, ultimately “bonding” the material to the tooth to improve a person’s smile. Among the easiest and least expensive of cosmetic dental procedures, bonding can repair chipped or cracked teeth, close gaps, change the shape of teeth, or be used as a cosmetic alternative to silver amalgam fillings.
