Do you want to enhance your smile, but are not sure of which type of cosmetic dentistry to use? Two of the best options available are dental crowns and dental veneers.There are advantages to both; much of your decision will depend on your specific situation. While a final decision is best made by consulting with your dentist at Best Dental Care NJ, LLC, here are some comparisons to consider:
Four Advantages of Dental Crowns:
Dental crowns fully contain damaged or unsightly teeth by capping the entire tooth down to the gum line.
Functionality: They improve the functionality and durability of a tooth, extending its lifespan. They can even help repair chipped or broken teeth by sealing the pieces together under the crown.
Customizable: Dental crowns can be customized and individually designed based on color, size, shape, and curvature.
Durability: They can last over a decade!
Versatility: Dental crowns can protect teeth that have fillings, root canals, and even implants.
Four Advantages of Dental Veneers:
Dental veneers conceal damage or unsightly teeth by affixing a small shell to the front of teeth for an aesthetically pleasing look.
Customizable: Dental veneers can also be customized and individually designed based on color, size, shape, and curvature, similar to dental crowns.
Tooth Strength: Dental veneers require very little tooth enamel removal, even less than dental crowns.
Durability: With proper care, veneers can also last over a decade.
Prestige: Dental veneers can give you a superstar smile and are often used by wealthy individuals and celebrities.
