Are you familiar with crowns and veneers and the effect on your smile? Drawing the line between dental veneers and dental crowns can be problematic. If you had to select just one of the services to improve your oral aesthetics, both answers would be ideal choices, as they both can improve the look of your smile. However, your preference should be determined on a case-by-case basis.

Dental crowns are small caps placed atop of teeth that you wish to cover up. Unlike dental veneers, crowns can fully seal a tooth clear down the gum line, for a durable fit that is both comfortable, durable, aesthetically pleasing, and extremely adept at protecting the tooth inside.

Dental veneers offer far less fortification to teeth than crowns do. However, thanks to their thin design, and extreme ability to be precisely customized, they can provide unrivaled levels of beauty and perfection to your smile, which is why they are often seen as the gold-standard in the quest for perfect smiles.
