When front teeth are discoloured, chipped or anaesthetic, bonding can be used to cover up the imperfections. This procedure consists of layering filling material over the teeth and then sculpting and polishing them. Generally, bonding will need to be replaced or touched up every five to seven years are it tends to look matte after a while.
Dental veneers are often used for similar reasons as bonding, except instead of filling materials, dental porcelain is used. In this procedure, a small (1/2mm to 1mm) amount of the discoloured, chipped or anaesthetic tooth is removed to allow space for the porcelain to fit. The big advantages of veneers is that they can look as natural as real teeth, they are bonded into place so they are very strong, and they maintain their shine. Veneers can also be used to close small spaces between teeth and correct minor tooth crowding.
