Dental veneers and dental crowns are cosmetic dentistry treatments at their finest. Not only are they designed to improve the look and function of your teeth, they are also extremely beneficial in creating an environment that improves your self-esteem, boosts your self-image, and enhances your standing in social circles. However, determining which one is best for you depends on a variety of factors.

With dental crowns, you can fully protect your teeth from most damage above the gum line. They are designed to bond to all sides of your teeth and act as a cap to keep them safe. However, they can be damaged if knocked out, so by no means are they an impenetrable shield. However, in regards to tooth decay, they are much more beneficial than even our own natural tooth enamel.

Dental veneers however, cannot fully protect our teeth from tooth decay, but they do add a minimal level of protection for the fronts of teeth. Their main purpose is to provide a near flawless look of each tooth. They may be thin, but they are extremely durable and can last for over a decade. Dental veneers are extremely popular for everyone looking to enhance the aesthetics of their smile.
