Which One Is Best for Your Smile: Dental Crowns or Dental Veneers?

Posted .

Is your smile broken or damaged from an oral accident or blemish? Are a few of your teeth keeping your smile from the movie-star quality look you desire? If so, a cosmetic dentistry restoration such as a dental crown or dental veneer can help. The question is, which one is best for your smile?

The first question you need to ask yourself is what you are looking for with a tooth restoration? Are you focused on repairing damaged teeth or simply covering them up for a better look? If your teeth are not damaged and simply lack the color or shine you desire, the better choice is likely dental veneers.

If your teeth are damaged or feature a previous dental restoration such as a root canal or dental filling, then dental crowns would be a better choice. Where dental veneers only conceal the fronts of teeth, dental crowns can fully encapsulate a tooth for added protection and functionality. Both forms of restoration can be customized and tailored to your desires based on color, size, shape, and look.
