Which is the better option: dental crowns or dental veneers? Both services are excellent treatment methods to enhance and upgrade the look of a tooth, or even repair it back to normal. Although dental crowns can help your smile achieve new levels of aesthetic beauty, so too can veneers. As with most dental procedures, the one that works best is typically the one that works best for you.

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

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