Dental bonding is effective in removing gaps between teeth, reshaping misshapen teeth, restoring cracked, chipped or broken teeth and even brightening stained teeth. Bonding may also be used by Dr. Nicholas Dose to repair small cavities. Dental bonding has a reasonable lifespan but is not the most durable of restorative dental procedures. Read more
Porcelain veneers are sheets of thin porcelain made to fully cover the front of the tooths surface in order to reshape or improve the color of the tooth. Veneers have a longer life expectancy than dental bonding and overall result in a more natural looking flawless smile. Porcelain veneers are used to repair cracked, chipped or otherwise damaged teeth, to remove spaces between teeth, to rid the teeth of stains and to improve the appearance of slightly crooked teeth.
