Think of porcelain veneers as a thin layer of tooth material that enhances your smile. They will look like beautiful, natural teeth and will resist staining. Veneers are a great solution if you have unevenly spaced, broken or chipped front teeth. They can cover up dark, stained or irregularly shaped teeth.
Dental crowns are what some people used to call ‘caps.’ They fit completely over the tooth and are useful to protect or restore a weak tooth that has decayed or cracked. Crowns are what hold a ‘bridge’ in place if you are missing teeth, and crowns can sometimes be used cosmetically to improve the look of your smile.
