Do you have a chipped tooth that mars your smile? Are your teeth stained by years of smoking? Do crooked or crowded teeth make you want to hide your smile.

You can find the solution to all these problems with either dental bonding or porcelain veneers at our Hershey, PA dental office. Both are cosmetic procedures that can improve the brightness and symmetry of your smile.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers create a more attractive smile by concealing flaws like broken teeth, uneven spacing between teeth, and even slight tooth misalignment. Super-thin shells of porcelain are designed for your smile at a custom dental lab. Your dentist then bonds them to the front surfaces of your teeth. Since your veneers are customized for your smile, they fit perfectly and look beautifully natural.

Veneers can be placed on just a few teeth or on all the teeth that show when you smile. Getting porcelain veneers in Hershey, PA takes place over two visits, and you can expect the results to last ten years or longer with proper care. 

Be aware, though, that since your dentist needs to remove a layer of dental enamel for your veneers to fit naturally, the process is irreversible. 

Cosmetic Dental Bonding

If you’re looking for a more conservative option that doesn’t require alteration of your teeth, dental bonding is a popular solution that works well for many smile flaws. Instead of being prepared at an outside dental lab, tooth-colored material filling material is used to build up a tooth to improve its shape, size, and appearance.
 
With dental bonding, we can fill in uneven gaps or spacing between teeth, repair a chipped or broken tooth, or mask stained teeth that can’t be whitened professionally.

Bonding is an affordable and conservative method for improving your smile. However, the results don’t last as long as porcelain veneers so you will need to replace them every five years or so.
