When should you pick veneers over crowns?
Now with today’s topic let’s talk about veneers and crowns. Both treatments as stated before are amazing for almost any case. The prices are similar so if you are worried about your budget they are both right in your alley. It will depend more in your tooth state rather than money or everything else. That is why previous evaluation is recommended to pick the right procedure for you.
If your teeth are mostly fine, they just have little cracks or are stained, veneers will be the right choice. This is because it requires less work than crowns as the dentists will only have to wear down the front of the tooth. Then the veneer will put in place perfectly just to cover the little imperfections.
One suggestion I can share with you is that you pick the right material. Pick porcelain veneer over any other material. There are composite resin veneers and plastic, both are horrible. They do not look or feel the same as natural teeth and never will. On the other hand ceramic or porcelain will feel just like home imitating the aesthetic perfectly and function just the same as real teeth. It also makes dental hygiene easier as you can brush them like always.
What about dental crowns?
If your teeth have huge cracks or have cavities, then dental crowns are the way to go. This is because the dentist has to wear down most of the tooth to repair it. for that it will leave a lump that will be the base for the crown. It may sound horrible but it is not, no one will tell the difference, not even you. This makes it a good procedure for cosmetic dentistry and a versatile solution at a good price.
Just like the veneers, you got to choose the right material. There are more options available such as porcelain fused with metal, full porcelain and zirconia. Each one is tougher than the last, being zirconia the best of them for its endurance and finish. I suggest that you go with zirconia or porcelain for the same reasons as before. If you are in a tight budget then I suggest porcelain for the front teeth and porcelain fused with metal for the back.
The thing with porcelain fused with metal is that it shows a metallic underline. This may detract most patients as it will tell the world you have a crown. Even so, our dental lab will do their best to conceal it so it looks just like you want it. Remember to take care of your crowns by brushing them daily just like your natural teeth. This is important so they can last you 10 years or more with the proper care.
