Should I get veneers or crowns for my teeth? - Dentist in Cancun

Should I get veneers or crowns for my teeth?

People who want a smile makeover wonder if they should get dental crowns or veneers. This is a normal question that can be likely be answered on a case by case basis with a thorough evaluation with our dentists in Cancun. Even then, here are some things to keep in mind.

 

Dental veneers are thin sheets of composite or porcelain, which adhere to the teeth on the front. They are thinner than crowns and involve less tooth reduction during placement. In many cases it is not necessary to carve the tooth to place them. Through adhesion the veneers are attached to the tooth and can last a long time.

 

Crowns, on the other hand, are complete structures. In general they are much thicker than veneers. They are made of different materials, such as porcelain or zirconium. In many cases its application is more complex than in the case of the veneers, since it involves carving a the dental piece in order to fit them. The result is a new structure that replaces a very damaged piece, to avoid tooth more dental problems.

 

So in short veneers are placed on teeth with a healthy and strong structure to improve their aesthetic appearance. They allow to improve the shape, size, position and color of the teeth, but do not reinforce their structure. It is recommended if we want to solve slight color changes in the tooth, slightly modify its shape or size. Crowns are applied to deteriorated teeth due to various causes, such as fractures or diseases such as cavities. Therefore, they are recommended when the patient needs to rehabilitate the structure of a tooth.
