Should I Get Porcelain Veneers Or Crowns?

Porcelain veneers and dental crowns are successful dental restorations. Both of them can resolve some dental issues. But how should you decide which treatment is better in your situation? The good thing is that you don’t need to decide alone. Dr. Anthony Mobasser and his team will collaborate with you to discuss your needs and dental concerns. That way, you will understand what this restoration can and can’t do to your situation.

What Are Porcelain Veneers And Dental Crowns?

Before you can decide which options are better for you, you should understand what they are and how they work. Porcelain veneers are thin shells, and they are bonded in front of your teeth that need fixing. Before placing them on your teeth, Dr. Mobasser must remove a small amount of your enamel. In that way, the veneers will fit perfectly. They will also look like they are your natural teeth as they do not alter your bite.

On the other hand, dental crowns are a kind of porcelain shell. However, they are designed to fit most of your teeth. Because of that, dental crowns can fix functionality and cosmetic issues. Now, to place the dental crown, Dr. Mobasser will shape your tooth so it will fit over your natural tooth and sit along with the other teeth naturally.

Porcelain veneers are ideal for cosmetic restorations as they do not affect teeth’s function. For example, porcelain veneers can be chosen if you have minor chips or damage to the enamel. Dental crowns can resolve all issues that a porcelain veneer can fix. However, they are also the ideal option if the functionality of your tooth has been jeopardized. For example, if your tooth has cracked because of trauma, it can be repaired using a crown but not the placement of the veneer. Furthermore, dental crowns are ideal for building teeth that cause problems with your bite. They are also placed to support your treated tooth after root canal therapy.

How Long Do They Last?

Porcelain veneers and dental crowns require a long-term commitment. Thus, you must consider your options very carefully. After your tooth has been prepared for either veneer or crown, you must keep the restoration in good condition to protect your natural tooth. To know which option is ideal for you, please call 310-550-0383. You must make an appointment first, as Dr. Mobasser only accepts patients through appointment.
