These photographs are untouched
Treatment : This patient did not like the spaces between her teeth. We discussed all the treatment options and decided to opt for tooth whitening and cosmetic bonding. Matching the shade of the cosmetic exactly to that of the surrounding teeth can be challenging; our criteria for success is that the results should be invisible from normal speaking distance. You can see from the photographs that even under close scrutiny, it is almost impossible to see the join.
So why choose bonding over veneers? There is no right and wrong answer – we consider each case individually and both treatments can give outstanding results.
Advantages of Cosmetic bonding:
* Little or no preparation of the teeth (cutting/drilling)
* Good cosmetic result
* Lower cost
Advantages of porcelain veneers:
* Excellent cosmetic results possible
* Longer life span (10yrs + average)
