Cosmetic Dental FAQs

Are you considering cosmetic dental treatment, but have questions? Read answers to common questions many patients have about cosmetic care:

How does dental bonding compare to porcelain veneers?

Dental bonding and porcelain veneers are similar treatments that both address tooth damage and discoloration. They also both blend in with the color of natural tooth enamel. However, they differ in multiple ways. Tooth bonding uses a biocompatible material molded onto teeth. Veneers fully cover the front of the tooth enamel. Dental bonding is best suited for chips or minor misalignment as they are a more economical option than veneers. However, dental veneers offer permanent treatment.

Can you whiten dental crowns?

No, dental crowns along with other restorative or cosmetic coverings cannot be whitened. Veneers, bonded teeth, and crowns do not respond to whitening gel or bleach. However, they can be used to cover areas of discoloration or stained teeth. If you have a tooth that is deeply stained or yellowed, we can provide you with a dental crown, veneer, or bonding treatment.

What are the benefits of Invisalign treatment?

Invisalign is a modern alternative to traditional braces. With Invisalign, patients can easily brush and floss their teeth. Invisalign patients can also enjoy the foods they love without restrictions. This is because Invisalign uses removable aligners. These aligners are also discreet because they are clear. Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign is great for teens and adults with crooked teeth.
