The upsides of dental crowns and dental veneers cannot be understated. Dental crowns are built with durability and protection in mind and dental veneers are built with aesthetics and comfort at the forefront. Dental crowns completely cover teeth whereas dental veneers only cover the fronts of teeth.
One of the major benefits of using dental crowns is the protection they have to offer. Dental crowns are tailored 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 essential.
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 wishes. They are very thin and can last over a decade. Dental veneers are also used to help correct slight misalignments with your smile including many forms of malocclusion.
