Porcelain Veneers vs. Crowns

We’re all aiming for a perfect smile, and here at integratedDENTAL we offer an array of dental services to help you get just that. Two popular procedures are porcelain veneers and crowns. What are they? Who are they for? How can they help? We answer these questions and more below:

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are slim, custom-crafted shells made of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of a tooth. If you’d like to change a tooth’s shape, position or tint, porcelain veneers might be right for you. We at integratedDENTAL offer veneers built to your exact specifications at our on-site laboratory, minimizing wait time. Our veneers can last for more than 20 years.

Crowns

Similarly, crowns (aka caps) can be used to cover teeth that are discolored or awkwardly shaped. A crown can also help strengthen a tooth, improve its look and attach bridges. For this reason, crowns are better suited for badly damaged teeth. Crowns can be molded into a myriad of shapes, and will typically last 10-15 years.
