Dental crowns and veneers are two common treatments for restoring damaged or decayed teeth. However, they have different purposes and are used in different circumstances.
Dental crowns are designed to cover the entire visible portion of a tooth, providing protection and improving its appearance. They are typically used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay, injury, or wear. Crowns can also be used to support a dental bridge or to cover a dental implant.
Dental crowns are typically recommended when a tooth is too damaged or decayed to be restored with a filling or veneer. Crowns are also used to support a dental bridge or to cover a dental implant.
Veneers are thin shells of tooth-colored material that are attached to the front of the existing tooth. They are designed to improve the appearance of teeth that are discolored, stained, or misshapen. Veneers can also be used to close gaps between teeth or to make teeth appear straighter.
Veneers are typically recommended for patients who are looking to improve the appearance of their teeth. They are a good option for patients with teeth that are discolored, stained, or misshapen, or for patients with gaps between their teeth.
