Veneers vs Bonding?

While composite bonding can be used to improve the appearance of your teeth, it is not a permanent fix. Bonding chips and stains easily and is not as durable as porcelain veneers. I would recommend replacing the crown on #7 and 4-8 veneers across the top. See an experienced cosmetic dentist for a complete evaluation to determine your options. The best indicator to determine if the dentist is going to give you the results that he or she claims, is by viewing before and after photos of his/her patients that have undergone similar or the same procedures. Veneers will surely have you smiling again! Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

Veneers vs. bonding
Each option has its plus and downsides.
An accomplished cosmetic dentist can give you photos of their work and go through each option to best help you. An Accredited dentist with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry is a very good place to start your search.

The best choice is usually to do 4, 8 or 10 teeth. Most well trained cosmetic dentists understand that the canine acts as an anterior tooth but has an angle that blends to posteriors.
I would suggest starting with 7& 10 or 7-10 and wait on canines, they can be done later. Perfect color match most essential on front four.
My lab comes in to my office and custom stains crowns to match my patients teeth. If doing a single crown it is helpful if your dentist has a high end cosmetic lab theat is local.
