Crowns and veneers are two separate dental enhancements, but they are often talked about together because they both help to restore the look and integrity of a natural tooth.
Dental crowns are devices used to cover the top layer of a damaged or decayed tooth. Your dentist uses a strong bonding cement to secure a crown to the top of your tooth. Crowns are usually made from porcelain or ceramic, and they can be matched to the exact color of your teeth. Crowns are also used to secure dental implants on top of a tooth.
Veneers are used to help enhance or correct imperfections on the front surface of your teeth. Like crowns, they are also made from porcelain or ceramic. Veneers, however, only cover the front portions of the affected tooth. Your dentist can match a veneer to the color of your natural tooth, which makes it blend in perfectly with your smile.
Crowns and veneers may help to address some of the same dental concerns, but they are generally used for different purposes.
Crowns help to protect and anchor a tooth if you’re getting a bridge. They also help to protect a tooth that is weak, damaged, or misshapen. Sometimes a patient needs a crown if they have recently undergone a root canal, or if a filling that is coming loose and needs replacing.
Veneers help to treat more cosmetic concerns, like discoloration, spaces between the teeth, cracks, chips, or uneven edges on your teeth.
Crowns and veneers can resolve a wide range of dental problems, but it’s important to maintain good oral health in order to see positive results and get the most life out of your dental work.
After a crown or veneer procedure, your dentist may give you special instructions in order to keep your teeth strong and healthy.
Since both crowns and veneers are virtually invisible to the naked eye, your smile will look completely natural.
