Are you looking to enhance your smile, but 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.

While a final decision is bet made by consulting with your dentist, here are some comparisons to consider:

Four Advantages of Dental Crowns:
Dental crowns fully conceal 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.
Customizable: Dental crowns can be customized and designed based on color, size, shape, and curvature.
Durability: They can last over a decade!
Versatility: Dental crowns can protect against 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 be customized and designed based on color, size, shape, and curvature.
Tooth Strength: Dental veneers require little tooth enamel removal, even less than dental crowns.
Durability: They can last over a decade, similar to dental crowns.
Prestige: Dental veneers can give you a superstar smile and are often used by wealthy individuals and celebrities alike.
