Differences between Dental Veneers and Crowns

Differences between Dental Veneers and CrownsPorcelain crowns and dental veneers can both be used to correct aesthetic issues and restore a natural, healthier appearance to teeth. Dr. Mirani, cosmetic dentist in Beverly Hills, uses both porcelain crowns and veneers to correct teeth that are damaged, cracked, discolored or chipped. However, the restorations and the procedures for applying them can be quite different.

Dental Crowns

Dental crowns are generally made of porcelain, but they can also be made of metal or porcelain fused to metal. Crowns are most frequently used to cover teeth that have suffered significant damage. Teeth that have had root canals, broken, cracked or have severe decay may benefit from porcelain crowns, which can restore not just the appearance but also the strength and function of damaged teeth. They fit over the entire visible portion of the tooth, which means they require more substantial preparation and alteration of the natural tooth.

Dental Veneers

Veneers are also generally made of porcelain, but they cover just the front of your affected tooth rather than the entire visible portion of tooth. Your tooth may require a small amount of altering to ensure proper placement of the veneers. In some cases, your tooth may not need to be filed at all. While dental crowns can correct dental health issues, dental veneers are most frequently used for cosmetic enhancement.

Both dental crowns and dental veneers can significantly improve your smile. Dr. Mirani, specialist for porcelain crowns in Beverly Hills, can help you learn more. Contact us to schedule your consultation.
