Dental Bonding in Lake Charles, LA

Close up of patients smile after dental bonding at Lake Charles dentist officeDental bonding is a tooth-colored composite resin that we use to fill in cavities through tooth-colored fillings and sculpt mildly to moderately flawed teeth to design a perfect smile. 

Our Lake Charles dentists often use dental bonding to correct chipped or cracked teeth, misaligned teeth, or even stubborn yellow or brown stains. We can also close gaps between teeth and cover roots that might be exposed. 

We match the resin shade to blend in with the rest of your smile. 

The dental procedure is simple, minimally invasive, and cost-effective. Patients can redesign their smiles in one dental visit. 

What Are Dental Veneers?

Dental veneers have always been a popular cosmetic treatment, with many enthusiastic fans stemming from the Hollywood industry to the girl next door. 

Dental veneers are translucent like natural teeth, and they can are shaded to perfectly blend in with your smile. Dr. Hannaman adheres the veneer to the front surface of your tooth to mask smile flaws like crooked teeth, chipped teeth, misaligned smiles, and more. 

Veneers are more permanent than dental bonding, and as such, require a little prepping to ensure a tight fit. With proper care and maintenance, they can last for many years. 

Should I Get Dental Veneers or Dental Bonding?

While both cosmetic treatments serve to correct an imperfect smile, dental veneers last longer and do not chip or stain easily. 

However, dental bonding is more cost-effective and can be done much quicker. 

Both look natural, but patients should determine if longevity, reliability, cost, and other factors are important.
