As a teen I wore braces to correct an overbite; the braces worked well to straighten my teeth but still left some small gaps. I wanted to close those gaps; after some research I chose to have bonding placed over my natural tooth instead of porcelain veneers.
I was skeptical of early veneers that required tooth reduction. The bonding helped me achieve the look I desired but it was high maintenance and I had to have touch ups done several times a year. Recently, I decided to replace the bonding with Durathin veneers after learning that the veneer would fit over my natural tooth without any reduction.
I have been wearing Durathin veneers for four weeks and I am very satisfied with how natural they feel and look.
