Cons of Dental Bonding:
Dental bonding is porous, and it can stain
Tooth bonding is not as strong as Porcelain
If you have weak enamel can you still have dental bonding done?
If you have enamel and dentin (the next layer) is not exposed, you can have dental bonding procedure done, however if it is at the edge of your teeth, depending on your bite and occlusion it might not last due to heavy load of your bite, you will be needing a bite analysis prior to tooth bonding, to access the forces exerted on the bonding. If the bite does not allow for dental bonding then perhaps a stronger material such as porcelain veneers, feldspathic or E max veneer should be recommended.
Dental bonding vs porcelain veneers
Many patients do not want their tooth structure to be touched, or cut much, for that reason, our Beverly hills cosmetic dentist would advise full dental bonding procedure to enhance the smile, however due to limitation of composite material used in dental bonding, the composite is not as strong as porcelain, and staining after a while is more evident in dental bonding vs porcelain veneers.
Depending on the bite and occlusion, on patients with clenching and grinding habits and lack of balanced occlusion, dental bonding can chip vs a stronger material such as porcelain veneer.
The cost of dental bonding is usually about the third of porcelain veneer cost, and it is an economical cosmetic dentistry treatment versus porcelain veneers. Dental bonding can be performed in one visit, vs 2 appointments necessary to have porcelain veneers.
Dental bonding can fail if patient is bulimic, or have acid re-flux, due to exposure of dentin. In general dental bonding is not for everyone, nor porcelain veneers. Dr Anthony Mobasser specializes in Porcelain veneers and dental bonding, and it is best to have a complete evaluation by him prior to you choosing one over the other. The bite and occlusion is one of the biggest factor, and generally to lengthen the short teeth or worn out teeth, porcelain veneers are indicated.
