Small imperfections can be eliminated quickly and inexpensively with dental bonding here at Exton Dental. Younger patients not ready for the more permanent solution of porcelain veneers can enjoy this less expensive alternative.
DR. JONATHAN SCHARF: For younger patients who are not really ready to have porcelain veneers, dental bonding is really an ideal choice. If the service of the tooth is healthy, and there are just small spots perhaps that are discolored, we can blend those right out with bonding extremely conservative, usually without any anesthesia, minimal reduction of the tooth, and a very nice restoration when minimal tooth reduction is necessary. For more sophisticated or more complex cases, of course we would go onto the porcelain veneer. The dental bonding is also very advantageous if there are financial limitations and the patient really is not in a position at this particular time to have the porcelain veneers.
