Cosmetic Solutions: Difference between Crowns and Teeth Veneers

tadc-veneers-crowns-04Cosmetic Solution offers you several options for restoring a damaged or unsightly tooth. Crowns and teeth veneers are two of the most common choices. Both can correct a variety of cosmetic and general dental problems such as crooked teeth, spaces between teeth, old or discolored fillings, broken teeth, chips or cracks, and more. Although their function is similar, crowns and veneers such as the popular Lumineers work in different ways. Before deciding between the two, it’s best to explore their variances.

Difference between Crowns and Teeth Veneers:

Both crowns and veneers are added apparatuses that change the physical structure and appearance of existing teeth. Both require some preparation of all existing teeth they will enhance.  A crown or cap is designed to mimic the appearance of all tooth surfaces; it covers the entire edge of the tooth. A veneer is a thin shell made up of porcelain and resin that fits over only the visible front and side portion of a tooth. Lumineers is a brand of ultra- thin dental veneers that requires less preparation and reduction of underlying teeth. When they are correctly designed and placed, both crowns and teeth veneers offers complete coverage of visible tooth areas so their value in cosmetic dentistry is equal. Because they restore chewing function crowns are used more often in general dental surgery.
