Dental bridges and dental bonding are cosmetic treatments that conceal or correct dental issues in patients who want to improve their smiles. Bridges and bonds—together or separately—can fix speech issues, help contour face shape, give you a great smile, and enhance your ability to chew food
However, there are differences between these two great options.
A bridge replaces missing teeth. Bridges also maintain the shape of your face and reduce stress on your bite. A bridge can be attached to surrounding teeth to help keep it in place.
Because bridges rely on existing teeth, it’s important to see your dentist regularly after your bridge placement. Your dentist will help you maintain the health of surrounding teeth.
Dental Bonding repairs small chips, hides discoloration, and can enhance the appearance of crooked teeth. Dental bonding relies on tooth-colored filling that bonds with your tooth or teeth to enhance the appearance.
The white-colored filling, sometimes used to fill cavities, comes in a variety of shades to match your teeth and better conceal cosmetic issues.
