Your Go-to Guide for Porcelain Veneers vs. Crowns

dca-blog-254-Dental-Veneers_1200x630

Two popular dental restorations that can improve your smile are porcelain veneers and dental crowns. But which one is best for you? Learn how these treatments differ to help you make the right decision.

The Difference between Dental Veneers and Crowns

To understand the difference, you need to know the similarities. Both veneers and crowns are types of dental restorations that repair and restore teeth damaged by decay or defects. Dental veneers are commonly called porcelain veneers because they are thin porcelain shells that are secured to only the front of a tooth. In contrast, crowns are also a form of porcelain shell, but they fit over the entire tooth and cover it completely. Since they fit over most of your tooth, crowns can fix a number of functionality issues as well as cosmetic ones.

Problems Perfect for Porcelain Veneers and Dental Crowns

To help you decide which dental restorations are right for you, it may help to understand which dental concerns each can correct. Porcelain veneers are ideal for repairing cosmetic concerns to improve the appearance of teeth, such as staining, enamel damage, small chips, tiny cracks, minor misalignment, and unattractive teeth. Keep in mind that dental veneers only cover the front surface of a tooth, so they won’t address functional issues. But since crowns fit over most of your tooth, they can fix all of those cosmetic concerns, along with a number of functionality issues to improve usage along with appearance. Crowns are also recommended to strengthen and support teeth compromised by bite problems and after some major dental treatments. Your dentist can help you determine which dental restoration is best for your needs.

The Last Word on How Long they Last

Both porcelain veneers and dental crowns last a lifetime, so you need to give plenty of thought to this permanent dental decision. It’s important to realize that both types of restorations are made out of stain-resistant delicate porcelain, which can become discolored or damaged over time without proper dental care. Follow these sensible steps to keep your restorations at their best:

  • Avoid eating very hard foods or chewing on non-food items like pens or fingernails because that can damage restorations.
  • Limit your intake of dark-colored foods and beverages that can stain the restoration’s porcelain.
  • Practice good oral hygiene at home every day.
  • Get regular professional dental check-ups and cleanings.

Treat your restorations well to keep them protecting and enhancing your smile.
