Winston-Salem Dental Group offers multiple cosmetic dental procedures for creating sensational smiles. Two of the most popular procedures are dental crowns and porcelain veneers.
Many patients don’t understand the difference between the two. Generally, a crown strengthens a compromised tooth while a veneer is used mainly for cosmetic improvements.
In short: a dental crown covers the entire visible part of the tooth. A veneer is an ultra-thin layer for the front of a tooth.
Crowns can be made of all porcelain (ceramic), from porcelain fused to metal, or gold. Veneers are made of several layers of extremely strong ceramic laminate.
Both crowns and veneers are affixed to the tooth with a special adhesive. Crowns and veneers are durable and can last many years if properly cared for, though they are not stronger than natural enamel.
