Should you get dental crowns or dental veneers? Both services are great but they both offer wonderful charm to your smile in slightly different ways. Dental crowns are caps designed to completely cover a damaged tooth down to the gum line whereas dental veneers are built to only cover the fronts of teeth with a thin shell to achieve the desired look.
One of the major advantages of using dental crowns is the protection they have to offer. Dental crowns are designed to fully conceal a tooth above the gum line to prevent further damage from occurring. Dental crowns may take more tooth enamel removal to be able to bond to a tooth, but in the event that damage should occur, they can be easily repaired or replaced if necessary.
Dental veneers are designed with visual aesthetics at the forefront, and although they only cover the fronts of teeth, veneers can be fully customized for the size, shape, rotation, and color each person desires. They are extremely thin and can last over a decade. Dental veneers are also used to help correct minor misalignments with your smile including many forms of malocclusion.
