The Difference Between Bonding & Porcelain Veneers

General, Cosmetic, and TMJ Dentists Serving Arlington, South Riding, and Nearby Areas of Northern Virginia

VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: Bonding is when a tooth-colored resin material, which is the same material used in fillings, is added to the tooth by the dentist to repair or enhance the appearance of a tooth. Porcelain veneer is made through a collaborative effort between a dentist and a laboratory technician. For porcelain veneer, a dentist prepares the tooth, and then the technician fabricates a custom veneer to fit over the tooth. This will enhance the appearance of the teeth and can even strengthen the teeth as well.
