When it comes to giving yourself a smile transformation, its best to learn and understand the different options you can choose from, so you can make a decision that best suits your personal needs. That is why our team is here to help you understand the difference between choosing dental crowns and dental veneers, so you can have the flawless smile you always dreamed of.
Dental crowns are artificial caps that are placed over a damaged tooth to improve its health and condition. The crown starts at the gumline and covers the entire tooth, providing a natural look, and strengthening your tooth. Because the dental crowns are made of many different materials, your dentist can match your crown to match the color of your teeth so the crown does not stand out and blends in naturally with your teeth.
Dental veneers are designed to cover the front surfaces of your teeth, rather than covering your entire tooth. By covering the front of your tooth, dental veneers can hide the flaws in your smile. These flaws include discolored teeth, chipped teeth, cracked teeth, slightly misaligned teeth, and more. Dental veneers need to be replaced every 5-10 years and they require strong teeth and enamel in order to successfully improve your appearance.
