For example, there are many ways to improve your smile, and you may find it hard to know which is the best choice for you. You’ve likely heard of porcelain veneers, which is one option for smile improvement. However, McKeel Family Dentistry also offers dental bonding to our Gresham patients.

What Is Dental Bonding?

Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses a tooth-colored resin. This resin is bonded to the surface of the tooth, providing both protection and an improved look. Bonding resin is both highly durable and made to match the color of existing teeth, providing a natural look. After the procedure, the dental bonding resin almost becomes part of your teeth for long-lasting and natural results.

What Are Veneers?

Veneers are made from a thin shell of porcelain and are used to cover the front of each tooth. Made from high-grade ceramic, porcelain veneers are attached to the surface of the tooth to give it a genuine tooth-like appearance and restore the appearance of teeth.

Is Dental Bonding the Best Choice for You?

While both bonding and veneers can provide Gresham patients with an improved look, Michael McKeel, DMD suggests bonding for minor problems in your teeth that don’t need extensive treatment. The benefits of bonding and veneers can overlap, but here are some scenarios where bonding is preferable:

  • Improve discolored teeth 
  • Close small gaps in between teeth 
  • Repair chipped, cracked or decayed teeth 
  • Improve the shape or length of teeth 
  • Protect areas on the teeth exposed from a receding gum line
