Are Porcelain Veneers or Crowns the Right Dental Decision for You?

Choosing the best dental restoration should be taken seriously because they will last you a lifetime with the proper care. Use this helpful dental guide to aid you in deciding whether veneers or crowns would be best for you.

When Crowns Reign Supreme

Crowns are one of the most popular dental restorations because they can improve both the appearance and function of a tooth. See, crowns completely cover a tooth to both repair problems and to restore its beauty. They are created in a dental laboratory and customized to give you a naturally more attractive appearance and stronger dental support. Dentists frequently recommend crowns because they’re known to deliver these dental benefits:

  • Repair all kinds of chips and cracks
  • Correct a tooth’s shape
  • Strengthen a tooth
  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • Restore a broken tooth
  • Brace a badly fractured tooth
  • Improve a tooth’s appearance
  • Cover stains and discoloration
  • Support a tooth with a large filling
  • Cover a dental implant

When Porcelain Veneers are Most Valuable

Porcelain veneers offer incredible aesthetic benefits. Veneers are very thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that are placed onto the front surface of a tooth. They are a favorite of both dentists and patients for the way they enhance the beauty of your smile and naturally improve small imperfections. As with crowns, they are made in a dental laboratory and customized to give you the most aesthetically pleasing results. Porcelain veneers provide these many advantages:

  • Enhance a smile’s beauty
  • Fix stained or discolored teeth
  • Correct minor chips and cracks
  • Repair gaps in teeth
  • Improve poorly shaped or crooked teeth

Cost of Care

Realize that veneers cost about the same amount as crowns, so your needs will determine which is right for you. Of course, crowns and veneers cost varying amounts depending on your location, dental provider, and the severity of your case. Discuss both options with your dentist in Woodbridge to see which treatment will give you the best results.
