Dental crowns and dental veneers are highly popular tooth restoration treatments that can turn below average smiles into shining white masterpieces. The reason is because both are highly customized to each patient, and can give your teeth the look, style, color, and function your teeth deserve. However, which one is best for you?
Dental crowns are a great choice if a tooth is so severely damaged it runs the risk of being pulled with a tooth extraction. In some cases, the tooth can be sealed with a crown to prevent further damage and give it back the function it is intended for. Although dental crowns can give your smile a better look, their primary purpose is to protect teeth and restore function.
Dental veneers are thin, durable shells that are pasted directly on the fronts of teeth to conceal any abnormalities and give teeth a sparkling shine that is sure to please. Although it won’t fully enclose and protect a tooth like a dental crown can, veneers are still extremely popular due to the ability to customize them to nearly any smile.
