Should I Choose Dental Bonding Over Veneers?

New Patient Specials

Dental bonding and veneers are two popular options to consider for cosmetic treatment. But how do you know which is right for you? Our team can help you make an informed decision. We have been serving Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, and neighboring communities such as Lawndale and Hawthorne for many years. 

Cosmetic-Oriented Treatments

Dental bonding and veneers are both cosmetic dental procedures designed to improve the appearance of your teeth. However, they differ in their application, durability, and aesthetic results.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding involves applying a tooth-colored composite resin to the surface of your teeth to correct minor imperfections such as chips, cracks, or gaps. This treatment is typically less invasive and more affordable than veneers but may not offer the same longevity or natural-looking results.


Veneers are custom-made porcelain shells crafted to fit over the front surface of your teeth, concealing imperfections and creating a brighter, more symmetrical smile. While veneers require some enamel removal for proper placement, they offer durable, long-lasting results that closely resemble natural teeth.

During your consultation, we’ll assess your smile and discuss your goals to determine which option is best suited to your needs. Factors such as the severity of your dental issues, your budget, and your desired outcome will all play a role in this decision.

Whether you choose dental bondings or veneers, our goal is to help you achieve a lasting, confident smile. Contact Manhattan Dental Care Studio today to schedule your consultation!
