Restore Your Happy Smile At Southpoint Dental Center
If you want to repair your chipped, broken, or discolored teeth, veneers in Walla Walla, WA, may be the right choice for you. While not every tooth is a candidate for cosmetic dentistry, our expert cosmetic dentist will explain all your options.
What is the Difference Between Veneers and Bonding?
Veneers in Walla Walla, WA, are made out of an ultra-thin coating of porcelain that more closely resembles the “life-like” appearance of a natural tooth. The bonding process, on the other hand, applies a “tooth colored” plastic material to the tooth, followed by a special ultraviolet light or laser to harden the plastic resin. While bonding is often a good choice for many patients, Dr. Gustavsen says that porcelain is generally more durable and stain-resistant, as the plastic resin can be stained by beverages like red wine and coffee.
Maintaining Your Porcelain Veneers in Walla, Walla, WA
Don’t worry, dental care for veneers is as simple as your regular brushing and flossing routine for your original teeth. Dr. Gustavsen will recommend a non-abrasive fluoride toothpaste to properly clean and polish your teeth without damaging the porcelain material.
