Crowns vs. Dental Veneers

Posted .

If you are in need of a dental makeover, there are few options available for you. Assuming you still have all your teeth, the need for dentures, bridges, or implants most likely would not be required. Either dental crowns or dental veneers would be the most likely options you should consider. Both options offer extremely realistic looking alternatives to natural teeth, but in vastly different ways. Below are five advantages to each:

Advantages of crowns:
– used to support teeth that have been badly damaged
– used to protect excessively worn teeth
– used to anchor a dental bridge
– used to mask tooth discolorations
– used to cover a dental implant or root canal therapy

Advantages of veneers:
– used to improve shape and color of teeth
– less tooth enamel needs to be removed than with a crown
– when done properly by a licensed professional, they are nearly impossible to notice
– used to correct flaws in your smile
– used to fix crowding or excessive space between your teeth
