Teeth Bonding VS Porcelain Veneers Video

In this video, Houston cosmetic dentist Dr. Amanda Canto discusses the differences between direct bonding (also known as teeth bonding, or dental bonding) and porcelain veneers.

Teeth Bonding VS Porcelain Veneers

What is the difference between direct bonding and porcelain veneers, you may ask? Direct bonding is a much more conservative route when it comes to veneering the tooth. They’re both veneers. We actually cover the front of the tooth with a plastic resin and create the same types of changes that you can actually create with porcelain.

The difference is that we don’t have to cut tooth structure off usually. It can be done in one visit, at one seating, and it does take some artistic skill. So someone that can sculpt and create the tooth structure or the shape that you would want is very important.

The drawback of a direct bonded veneer is that over time the material does pick up color as it is made out of a plastic silica. Therefore, it does need to be replaced more often. However, for those people who are not ready to consider a reduction of their tooth and want to keep it very conservative, it’s a great route to go.
