A beautiful smile isn’t just a “nice-to-have.” Many studies conducted over the past several years have shown that having an attractive smile helps boost your self-esteem and gives you more self-confidence. Two of the best ways to achieve a beautiful smile are porcelain veneers and dental bonding. Dr. Brawner offers both of these dental services to his family of patients in the Austin, TX, area.
Top Reasons to Choose Arbor Oaks Dental for Porcelain Veneers and Dental Bonding
Whether you choose porcelain veneers or dental bonding, the results will be the same in one important aspect – you’ll end up with an absolutely gorgeous smile! The process involved for either service typically takes just one visit to our Austin, TX, office, and both are virtually pain-free. Dr. Brawner and his staff have successfully performed both porcelain veneer and dental bonding procedures for countless patients in the past, which means they have the experience you and your family are looking for in a quality dental practice.
What You Should Know about Porcelain Veneers and Dental Bonding
Although the end results are quite similar, there are some subtle differences between porcelain veneers and dental bonding. Veneers are made from an extremely thin layer of porcelain that Dr. Brawner applies directly over your natural teeth. The process is quick (usually completed in a single visit) and virtually pain-free. Veneers can also be used to repair problems such as broken or chipped teeth, misshaped teeth, or teeth that have been worn down.
Dental bonding involves applying a bonding material over your natural teeth, then using a special light to harden that material. The procedure is painless and can be completed in a single visit to our office. Bonding can also be helpful in changing the appearance of chipped or misshaped teeth. But unlike porcelain veneers, bonding material can be stained just like your own teeth, so habits like smoking or drinking too much coffee or red wine can stain the bonding material. The material can also be damaged if you eat hard candy or chew ice, for example.
