Are you wondering whether porcelain veneers or crowns are best to remedy your dental problems? Rely on these helpful hints to choose which dental restoration is right or you.

The Pros of Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers offer outstanding aesthetic and cosmetic benefits. Veneers are very thin shells of tooth-colored porcelain that are placed onto the front surface of a tooth. They are popular with both dentists and patients for the way they enhance the beauty of your smile and naturally improve small imperfections. Veneers are created in a dental laboratory and customized to give you the most aesthetically pleasing results. Porcelain veneers provide many benefits. They can:

  • Enhance a smile’s beauty
  • Improve stained or discolored teeth
  • Correct crooked or poorly shaped teeth
  • Repair gaps in teeth
  • Cover small cracks and chips

The Glory of Crowns

Crowns are very versatile and can improve a wide range of both functional and cosmetic dental issues. Crowns completely cover a tooth to both repair problems and restore its beauty. Like veneers, they are created in a dental laboratory and customized, so they can give you a naturally more attractive appearance and stronger dental support. Crowns are frequently recommended by dentists because they provide such a wealth of advantages, including:

  • Enhance a tooth’s appearance
  • Cover stains and discoloration
  • Repair all kinds of chips and cracks
  • Improve a tooth’s shape
  • Strengthen a tooth
  • Protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • Restore a broken tooth
  • Brace a badly fractured tooth
  • Support a tooth with a large filling
  • Cover a dental implant

Considering the Costs of Veneers or Crowns

If cost is a consideration, you’ll be pleased to know that veneers cost around the same amount as crowns. This should allow your needs to determine the right choice for you. Of course, crowns and veneers cost varying amounts depending on your location, provider, and the severity of your case. Discuss both of these options with your dentist in Indiana to see which treatment can give you the best results.
