Is bonding the same as veneers?
With composite bonding, a material is applied to the surface of your teeth and then cured with a special light, which hardens the material ensuring it securely adheres to your teeth. Veneers, however, are thin, custom-made porcelain restorations that are bonded to the front surface of your teeth, which could involve the removal of some tooth enamel.
