Learn about Veneers and Crowns with Cosmetic Dental Michigan Professionals

Cosmetic dentistry offers you several options for restoring a damaged or unsightly tooth. Crowns and teeth veneers are two of the most common choices. Both can correct a variety of cosmetic and general dental problems such as crooked teeth, spaces between teeth, old or discolored fillings, broken teeth, chips or cracks, and more. Although their function is similar, crowns and veneers such as the popular Lumineers work in different ways. Before deciding between the two, it’s best to explore their differences.

Investigating the Differences between Crowns and Teeth Veneers

Both crowns and veneers are added components that change the physical structure and appearance of existing teeth. Both require some preparation of the existing teeth they will augment. A crown or cap is designed to mimic the appearance of all tooth surfaces; it covers the entire circumference of the tooth. A veneer is a thin shell made from porcelain or resin that fits over only the visible front and side portions of a tooth. Lumineers is a brand of ultra-thin dental veneers that requires less preparation and reduction of underlying teeth. When they are correctly designed and placed, both crowns and teeth veneers offer complete coverage of visible tooth areas, so their value in cosmetic dentistry is equal. Because they restore chewing function, crowns are used more often in general dental settings.

What Cosmetic Dental Detroit Professionals Think

Cosmetic dental Detroit dentists point out that nearly 100 percent of a crowned tooth is covered and protected from decay. Veneers leave more decay-prone areas of a tooth exposed. The ability of a restoration to actually support continued dental health is something any good affordable dentist appreciates.

How Patients Feel about these Cosmetic Dentistry Options

Both crowns and teeth veneers produce a favorable result for people who need extensive restoration. Some online review sites report that more dental patients are satisfied with crowns as opposed to veneers. A common complaint is that veneers lend a bulky or oversize appearance to teeth. However, an oversize appearance can also occur with a dental crown.

Look to your Own Good Affordable Dentist for Guidance

When choosing between veneers and crowns, it’s important to remember that each case is different. To get the most from dental restorations, patients should discuss their personal dental needs and desired outcomes with their cosmetic dentists.
