Are dental crowns or dental veneers better? Depending on your oral health needs and desires, both tooth restoration treatments can be highly effective and beneficial to your smile. When determining which one works best for you, speak with your dentist and set up an appointment for a thorough exam to see which one will benefit you the greatest.
One of the major perks of using dental crowns is the protection they have to offer. Dental crowns are installed 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 needed.
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 needs. They are tremendously thin and can last over a decade. Dental veneers are also used to help correct minor misalignments with your smile including various forms of malocclusion.
