Which is Best: Bonding, Whitening, or Dental Veneers?

You’ve decided to invest in yourself andplanned to do something about it!

Before settling on one specific dental treatment, it’s important to know the benefits of each popular option and what it’s used for.

The Right Cosmetic Treatment

Teeth Whitening — Professional whitening provides a base tooth color that’s naturally whiter than what you had before. We often suggest whitening your teeth prior to other types of treatments (such as our dental veneers in Sherman Oaks,) so that we can “match” other dental work to the rest of your smile. You can whiten your teeth in our office or at home, with a customized kit.

Composite Bonding — When a small chip or irregularity is involved, you don’t need to cover up the entire tooth. Instead, a small area of cosmetic dental bonding is usually best. Not only is this less invasive to the tooth, it’s more affordable than a full-scale aesthetic makeover. You would be surprised at what just improving one flawed tooth can do to your entire appearance. Bonding takes just one appointment to complete.

Porcelain Veneers — To recreate what your smile looks like from one side to the other, porcelain veneers in Sherman Oaks are a perfect choice. While leaving your healthy teeth behind them, veneers mask the surface that people see when you talk or laugh. It’s as if you have a new smile, without getting braces, whitening, or crowns. The entire process takes 2-3 appointments.
