Tooth restoration is often performed by dentists to help the appearance and function of teeth. There are different types of restoration that can be used, two of which include porcelain crowns and veneers (either porcelain or composite).
The main difference between crowns and veneers is that veneers are mainly used to improve the appearance and aesthetic of the teeth/tooth. Crowns are more likely to be used after a root canal has been performed. Crowns are more likely to be destructive to the enamel and help restore fractured teeth.
Crowns fully encapsulate the teeth or damaged tooth- which is why are they often quite destructive. Veneers on the other hand are just a thin layer of either porcelain or other material that is bonded to the surface of the tooth.
Both crowns and veneers have different functions as methods of tooth restoration, so it is important to speak to a dentist about what is the best solution for you.
