Closing Your Front Tooth Gap: Bonding or Veneers?

Closeup of Woman Smiling After Porcelain Veneers and BondingYour smile is one of the first things people notice about you. Unfortunately, few of us were born with perfect teeth. While there are several types of imperfections that can exist, a large gap between the front teeth is among the most common and concerning. If you are hiding your smile due to an unsightly space between your two front teeth, your cosmetic correction may not be as costly or time-consuming as you may think. In fact, there are two cosmetic dentistry solutions that can correct tooth gaps in just a few short visits – cosmetic bonding and porcelain veneers.

Cosmetic Bonding

Bonding is going to be your most affordable and quickest option in terms of fixing your tooth gap. In fact, it’s a painless procedure that only takes one brief visit. Cosmetic bonding relies on composite resin, the same strong material used in tooth-colored fillings. Composite resin is applied to the side of the tooth to build up the tooth and close the gap. The resin is hardened with a special low-heat curing light and polished towards smooth perfection. The result is a natural-looking and more confident smile – and no more embarrassing gap!

Cosmetic Veneers

There are times in which the gap between your front teeth is just too large to solve with composite resin. In such cases, porcelain veneers are a better choice. Porcelain veneers involve bonding a thin shell of porcelain to the front surfaces of your teeth. They can be customized in color, size and shape – so your dentist will fabricate them in a way that closes the gap in the most natural and seamless way possible. Veneers do require that a tiny portion of your teeth be shaved off so that the veneer can bond more strongly. This makes the procedure irreversible, but most patients never want to go back to their gapped smile anyways. Though more invasive than cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers involve minimal time (2-3 visits) and no discomfort. You can even use veneers to cover up stains, chips and cracks. As an added bonus, veneers are also stain resistant, so you can retain a white smile despite your love of coffee or red wine.

At the office of Dr. Wayne Suway, we can help you determine which cosmetic dentistry solution is best for you – based on your needs, your budget and your preferences.

Porcelain Veneers

Vinings Porcelain VeneersThese days it seems that there are endless ways to enhance people’s appearance and/or make them appear younger. However, what many people fail to take into consideration is the appearance of their smiles. A smile has a huge impact on the overall appearance of the face. A smile that is dull, damaged, or misaligned can add years to the face, while a bright white, straight smile can takes years off the face. A radiant white smile is almost synonymous with youthfulness; therefore, people should not neglect their smiles when wanting to transform their appearance. Wayne G. Suway, DDS, MAGD is the trusted source in Vinings to help patients restore confidence in the look of their smiles with porcelain veneers.

Porcelain veneers are used to transform less than stellar smiles into smiles that are worthy of being shown off. Porcelain veneers are strong, custom made shells that cover the front surfaces of the teeth in order to immediately modify their appearance. With porcelain veneers the natural teeth are prepared by removing a small amount of the tooth enamel so that there is room in the mouth for the veneers. Once the customized veneers are fabricated, they will e applied and permanently cemented to the teeth using a special hardening light. Because porcelain veneers can be color matched, it is easy to restore just those teeth that need restoration. For instance, perhaps two front teeth were chipped or broken biting into something hard. Porcelain veneers can be made to correct just those teeth. Of course, some people wish to transform or correct their entire smiles, and veneers can also be used for that purpose.

If you are interested in porcelain veneers or would like to set up a consultation to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for them, please contact the dental practice of Dr. Wayne Suway. With over 30 years of experience in family, comprehensive, and cosmetic dentistry, Wayne G. Suway, DDA, MAGD is the reputable name to know and trust in Vinings for your impressive smile.

Missy Stone

I have known Dr. Suway for 30 years. My parents found him originally and made me a believer and life long friend and patient. In the years since, I have recommended my husband, son and friends. I would hear that going to the dentist was a fear of many people. I could never understand that because it was always a pleasure to come to Dr. Suway’s office. His staff are so professional, gentle and kind. It’s nice to see the same faces twice a year. You can tell they love working with him. I tell people that Dr. Suway gives the best shots – you can’t even feel a pinch. My son who hates needles, has no problem getting a shot for a filling. I love Dr. Suway’s personality. When you walk in the office you might hear him singing a country western song. I have porcelain veneers on my front teeth and am so thrilled. It’s been 10 years and they are still white and beautiful. He is an artist and perfectionist who loves to make people happy. I recommend Dr. Suway to become your dentist. He is a man of character and professionalism, yet down to earth. If you choose Dr. Suway, you’ll get an excellent dentist, but also a friend for life.

Dennis & Maria Liber

Dr. Suway is very relaxed and as a result we find that we are very relaxed as well. He takes the time to listen when we have concerns and he answers questions fully. We never feel like he is rushing from us to another patient. When we do need fillings, crowns or any other extensive work, he is concerned that we are comfortable and feeling no pain.

Nealean K. Austin

Through the years, we have found Dr. Suway to be a skillful perfectionist in all areas of his profession. He keeps abreast of and utilizes the latest dental techniques to improve and ensure the longevity of his patient’s teeth. He is a caring, personable professional who always greets his patients with a sincere, ready smile. Dr. Suway is also a ‘confidence booster.’ I say this because by the time I was 30 years old I was wearing dentures. He immediately recognized a self-conscious young wife, mother and professional who needed his professional help. His approach to boosting my confidence was through dental implants. At that time dental implants were a relatively new procedure. Dr. Suway carefully explained to me the advantages of dental implants and was proactive in working with my insurance provider to ensure that they understood the correlation between the required dental procedures and health plan benefits. I can smile with confidence forever because of Dr. Suway. Dr. Suway’s staff is a mirror image of his positive professionalism. They are always courteous, knowledgeable, efficient and personable. Appointments are scheduled at your convenience. You know that your time is valued because at the precise time of your appointment you are greeted, then immediately seen by either Dr. Suway or a hygienist. His work is outstanding and he is one of a kind.

Allison Lewis

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Suway since 1988. Dr. Suway and his staff have provided us with state-of-the-art oral health care in a pleasant, friendly and compassionate environment for many years. Dr. Suway has done many procedures for me including root canals, crowns and a bridge. His work is beautiful. He is truly a perfectionist and that is exactly what I want in a dentist. I would never trust my smile to anyone other then Dr. Suway.
