Do all dentists do oral cancer screening?

Screening for oral cancer is part of the traditional examination a patient receives during a regular visit.

Veneers are created of a porcelain material that is matched to the surrounding teeth. Veneers are highly resistant to staining. Veneers are last longer than bonding, with the potential of lasting 15 to 25 years or more, whereas Composite dental bondings may last 5 to 10 years. This all depends on your home health and how you take care of your dental work.

The restoration you pick typically depends on your specific needs and your ideal treatment outcome. Generally, tooth bonding is selected for smaller changes in a healthy mouth, while veneers can be better for someone who needs a more substantial change to their smile.
