Typically veneers are used when a patient would like to improve the shape and color of their teeth. Crowding and excess space issues can also be alleviated. Veneers are thin (approximately fingernail thickness), beautifully shaped porcelain that is customized for the individual patient.
People who have cracked, chipped, broken, or worn down teeth can find new love for their smile thanks to porcelain veneers. Significant tooth discoloration can also be mitigated through the use of veneers.
Crowns are frequently used in cases in which there is less tooth structure due to tooth decay or in cases in which a tooth has undergone root canal therapy. Crowns can achieve all of the aesthetic advantages of veneers and should only be used when necessary.
Often times when teeth are damaged, such as by decay or injury, a filling can resolve the issue. When the problem is larger in scope or persists over time, however, a crown may offer the best protection.
Dental crowns are designed to be placed right on top of the existing damaged tooth, and cemented in place. They protect the tooth from any further damage, restore the appearance of the tooth, and return it to normal function for biting and chewing.
