With all the options available for our oral health care treatment these days, it can sometimes be daunting trying to figure out which dental procedures and treatments would work best for you. In the case of tooth restorations, dental crowns and dental veneers are two of the best. However, which is better?
The question of which is better between dental crowns or veneers for a tooth restoration is not one that can or should be made. Both treatments are best determined on a case-by-case basis, as each individual and patient’s needs arise. However, each treatment does have its benefits over the other.
Dental veneers are extremely durable, yet small shells that are known for their aesthetic beauty. If you are looking to cover up any imperfections in your smile, dental veneers are probably the better option. With dental crowns, they can be used to completely conceal and cap a tooth. This is extremely beneficial for teeth that have suffered any damage and for those teeth that are at an increased risk for tooth decay and cavities. Dental crowns can protect your teeth better than our own natural tooth enamel. However, you dentist can best decide which treatment will work best for you and your oral health care desires.
