If you have a broken, loose, weak, or discolored tooth, crowns or veneers are two popular options. But as with any dental procedure, it’s important to do some research and figure out which treatment is best for you. We’ll give you the facts, advantages, and disadvantages, and help you decide the best course of action.
Veneers are thin shells that are like covers for your teeth.They are normally colored to match your natural teeth. Veneers attach to the surface of your teeth to give you the appearance of a healthy, attractive smile.
Veneers are often used to treat cosmetic issues such as chipped, broken, or discolored teeth. People often opt to get several veneers even when they only have one broken tooth, to achieve a uniform look.
Can be Inexpensive: The cost of your veneers depends on the type you choose.
Easy Procedure: Attaching veneers is not a particularly long, invasive process.
Can Look Relatively Natural: Veneers are often made to match the shade of your teeth.
Irreversible: Your dentist has to remove a thin layer of enamel before fitting veneers over your teeth. This can lead to sensitivity problems with your teeth. And because veneers are so thin, they won’t provide an adequate barrier to prevent discomfort from hot and cold foods.
Higher maintenance: Veneers pop off relatively easily, and you cannot fix it yourself. When your veneer pops off, you’ll have to call your dentist and make an appointment to get it fixed.
Short Lifespan: Veneers don’t last as long as dental crowns. And if you opt for a cheaper kind of veneer, they will be even less durable.
Durability: Both composite and porcelain veneers are vulnerable to chipping or cracking. Composite veneers can stain easily, throwing off the uniform look of your smile.
Potentially Ineffective: If your tooth is in particularly bad shape, veneers might not be possible. In this case, crowns are a better option.
A dental crown is a type of prosthetic cover that a dentist puts over your tooth. It can be made out of a few different materials, including metal, steel, or porcelain. The crown is usually colored to match the natural color of your teeth, making it blend in seamlessly.
Guaranteed Success: 772 Implant offers a 7-year warranty against fractures. This means that if anything happens to your crown, we’ll be happy to repair it at no cost to you.
Natural: The crowns made at our office are the most natural-looking, aesthetically pleasing crowns available. Crowns blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, so no one will know they’re there.
Long-Lasting: Dental crowns are durable and can last for a lifetime with proper care. All you need to do is brush and floss regularly, attend regular dentist appointments, and avoid certain hard, sticky foods like hard candy and toffee.
Easy Procedure: Getting fitted for, and placing crowns is a simple process. Since it doesn’t involve treating your nerves or gums, there aren’t many risks of complications or long recovery time.
Sensitivity: You might experience some increased sensitivity to hot or cold foods. This usually disappears within a few days.
Alters the tooth underneath: Some types of crowns require your dentist to file down part of your existing tooth to accommodate the crown. You can avoid this by choosing a different material.
We think that crowns are more cost-effective, durable, and natural-looking than veneers. Dental crowns, when cared for properly, can help to maintain a beautiful smile for life. While veneers can be inexpensive and look pretty natural, they’re more likely to cost you more trips to the dentist to repair, and ultimately more money.
