Are Porcelain Veneers or Crowns Better Suited for your Smile?

If you’re trying to decide whether porcelain veneers or crowns would be the best way to improve your teeth and smile, use these trusted tips to make the right dental decision.

When Crowns are King

Dental crowns are a favorite dental restoration since they can be used for both functional and cosmetic purposes. See, crowns completely cover a tooth to both repair problems and restore the tooth’s beauty. They are created in a dental laboratory and customized to give you a naturally more attractive appearance and stronger dental support. Dentists often recommend crowns because they offer these dental benefits:

  • Improving a tooth’s appearance
  • Covering stains and discoloration
  • Repairing all kinds of chips and cracks
  • Fixing a tooth’s shape
  • Covering up a dental implant
  • Strengthening a tooth
  • Protecting a weak tooth from breaking
  • Restoring a broken tooth
  • Bracing a fractured tooth
  • Supporting a tooth with a very large filling

When Porcelain Veneers are Picture-Perfect

People demand porcelain veneers because they offer so many outstanding cosmetic advantages. 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 because of their ability to enhance the beauty of your smile and naturally improve small imperfections. Like crowns, veneers are carefully customized in a dental laboratory to provide the most attractive results. Porcelain veneers offer these advantages:

  • Enhance a smile’s beauty
  • Eliminate stains and discoloration
  • Improve poorly shaped or crooked teeth
  • Repair noticeable gaps in teeth
  • Correct minor chips and cracks

Care Costs and Considerations

Did you know that veneers cost approximately the same price as crowns? This will allow your case to determine your care option. Of course, crowns and veneers cost various amounts depending on your location, dental provider, and the severity of your case. Discuss these options with your dentist in Downtown Detroit to see which treatment can offer you the best results.
