Should I Pick Crowns or Veneers?

Posted on 10/25/2021 by Fern Creek Dentistry
Should I Pick Crowns or Veneers?Teeth are sturdy, but they are more prone to damage than we may think. Gaps, crooked and chipped teeth are one of the most common cosmetic concerns for patients of all ages. Luckily, there are plenty of methods, such as crowns or veneers, who can help people restore them to their former glory. A healthy smile is one that is functional, but also attractive.

Dental Veneers

The dental veneer is a super thin sheet of porcelain, which is permanently adhered to the tooth by an adhesive or special cement. The veneer partially protects the tooth, covering the front part for purely aesthetic reasons. In addition to showing an enviable smile, it allows you to choose other aspects such as the size and shape of the piece.

Dental veneers solve problems such as small tears, slight deviations, or stains on the teeth.

Another advantage of veneers is that, unlike crowns or dental covers, veneers are not an invasive treatment. It is not necessary to carve an entire tooth to place one. Veneers can be useful for our front teeth, which are the center of attention of our smiles, but we can also place them on canines and incisors.

Dental Crowns

Crowns are caps in the shape of a tooth made of porcelain, porcelain and metal, or only metal, which we place on the natural tooth of a patient at the time of a dental restoration procedure. They can cover entire damaged or fractured teeth, restoring their shape, size, and functionality.

Dental crowns can be temporary. A patient can wear them for a while, then go back to our dentist and fix them permanently. We always need to prepare and grind the tooth they will cover to reduce its size and be able to place the crown. It is usually used for teeth in the posterior area of the mouth (premolar and moral), but patients can also have crowns in the anterior area.

Both veneers and crowns help restore a smile in different ways. Please contact us today if you have any more doubts about what aesthetic method to use.
