When it comes to transforming your smile, Dental Veneers and Crowns are two of the most popular options available. But how do you decide which is right for you?

What are Dental Veneers?

Dental Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are custom-made to fit over your teeth. They are an ideal solution for addressing a variety of dental issues, such as:

  • Discolored teeth that cannot be whitened by bleaching
  • Chipped or worn teeth
  • Irregularly shaped or misaligned teeth
  • Gaps between teeth

What are Dental Crowns?

Dental Crowns, on the other hand, are a type of dental restoration which completely caps or encircles a tooth or dental implant. Crowns are often needed when a large cavity threatens the ongoing health of a tooth. They are also used to:

  • Restore a broken tooth or a tooth that has been severely worn down
  • Cover and support a tooth with a large filling
  • Hold a dental bridge in place
  • Cover misshaped or severely discolored teeth
  • Cover a dental implant

Making the Right Choice for Your Smile

Choosing between veneers and crowns comes down to the condition of your teeth and your cosmetic goals. If you’re looking to correct minor cosmetic issues, veneers may be the solution. For teeth that require more extensive restoration, crowns may be the better option.
