Two of the most common dental procedures are crowns and veneers and both enhance and repair your existing teeth.
A crown is an artificial restoration that fits over the remaining parts of a damaged tooth, making it strong and giving it the shape of a natural tooth. It is sometimes known as a cap. Crowns are an ideal restoration for teeth that have been broken, weakened by decay or include a large filling.
The main difference between the two:-
Veneers only cover the front of the tooth – the part that people see when you smile – whereas a crown encases the tooth.
Although both procedures will improve the appearance of your teeth, veneers may not be appropriate where the tooth has greater damage. Veneers can be a suitable option where your teeth are discoloured or have other irregularities while a crown will be necessary where a tooth has broken down or lacks strength
Improved appearance which can hide minor imperfections
Crowns are used to protect any weak tooth in the mouth
