Depending on your oral health needs and wishes, there are benefits and perks to both dental crowns and dental veneers. Depending on your needs, each one has a distinct set of advantages, although they are both extremely effective at upgrading and enhancing teeth that are damaged or stained.
In the case of dental veneers, they exist as thin shells that are permanently placed atop your teeth, preferably visible teeth in the front of your mouth. Veneers can be customized and crafted for the look you desire, but they can also be shaped to help correct misalignments due to spacing issues that may exist with your teeth.
Dental crowns not only cover up the fronts of teeth as veneers do, but they cover up all sides of a tooth so that the tooth is completely protected down to the gums. This not only allows for a total makeover of the tooth’s aesthetics, but it prevents further damage in the future.
