A Complete Comparison of Dental Veneers and Crowns

Have you heard about the way that porcelain veneers and dental crowns can give you a better smile? These are two very popular dental restorations, so discover if one is right for you.

How Dental Veneers and Crowns Differ

To understand the difference, you need to know the similarities. Porcelain veneers and dental crowns are both types of dental restorations used to repair and restore teeth damaged by decay or defects. Dental veneers are often called porcelain veneers because they are thin porcelain shells secured only to the front of the tooth. Crowns, on the other hand, are also a form of porcelain shell, but they fit over the entire tooth and cover it completely. Since they fit over most of your tooth, dental crowns are used to fix a number of functionality issues as well as cosmetic ones.

How to Know which Problems Call for Porcelain Veneers and which Should be Solved with Dental Crowns

To help you decide which dental restorations are right for you, it may help to understand which dental concerns each can correct. You’ll want to choose porcelain veneers if your concerns are only cosmetic or minor, such as tiny chips, small cracks, basic misalignment, worn enamel, or discoloration. Realize that they only cover the front surface of a tooth, so they won’t address functional issues. But since crowns fit over most of your tooth, they can fix all of those cosmetic concerns, plus a number of functionality issues to improve the way your teeth work and they way they look. Crowns are also recommended to strengthen and support teeth affected by bite problems and after some major dental treatments. Your dentist can help you figure out which type is best for you.

How to Make your Restorations Look Great and Last

Both of these dental restorations are permanent and can last a lifetime with proper care. That’s why you need to carefully consider your choice. Also, it’s important to be aware that both types of restorations are made out of stain-resistant delicate porcelain, which can become discolored or damaged over time without the right dental care regimen. These sensible steps should help keep your restorations looking their best for years to come:

Practice good oral hygiene at home everyday.

  • Limit your intake of dark-colored foods and beverages that can stain the restoration’s porcelain.
  • Get regular professional dental check-ups and cleanings.
  • Avoid eating very hard foods or chewing on items like pens or nails because that can damage restorations.

Treat your restorations like something precious to keep them protecting and enhancing your smile.
