If you are in need of a tooth restoration service and wish to present a better image of the tooth to the world, which service should you choose? Do you need a crown or a veneer? Both services are highly customizable and can improve the look of your smile. However, they do have their differences.

Dental crowns will not only conceal a damaged or ugly tooth, it can also protect it from further harm. This works because the crown will completely cover the tooth’s surface above the gum line. If your tooth is badly damaged, a dental crown will do a better job than a veneer to hold the remaining tooth together and prevent further damage.

Dental veneers do not conceal the entire tooth, but rather only the fronts of them. However, because veneers are extremely durable and thin, only a small amount of tooth enamel, less than the amount of a dental crown, needs to be removed to bond the veneer to the front of a tooth. Veneers are also minimal enough in their design to work in a variety of situations and styles.
