Crowns vs. Veneers: What You Need to Know
What You Need to Know: If you’d like to improve your smile, you may be feeling a little bewildered about the different options available.
You’ve probably heard of crowns and veneers, but what’s the difference?
We’re going to answer that question and more in our guide to crowns vs. veneers, so read on!
What’s a veneer?
Veneers are thin covers that are fixed to the front of your natural teeth. They are mainly used for cosmetic purposes, improving the appearance of your smile.
Veneers can change the colour, size, shape or even the length of your teeth. Their versatility means they can hide all sorts of imperfections, including chips, gaps, stained or discoloured teeth or even crooked teeth.
Here at Integrity Dental, we use porcelain for our veneers, which is a long-lasting material with a natural look.
Veneers are a great option for anyone wanting to enhance their smile with minimal removal of tooth enamel. The result is a great-looking smile and a more confident you.
What’s a crown?
A crown is a cap that fits over an existing tooth, which has the appearance of a natural tooth.
Crowns not only improve the look of your teeth but also provide support and strength.
This means they’re the perfect choice to protect a weak tooth, support a tooth that needs a large filling, cover an unsightly tooth or help support a bridge.
So if you have dental issues that need fixing and also want to enhance your smile, consider going for crowns. We use metal-free ceramic crowns here at Integrity Dental to offer a safe, attractive and natural-looking result.
