The difference between a crown and a veneer – a crown covers all surfaces of a tooth. Crowns can be used to enhance the strength of a tooth if it has been fractured or badly broken down. If a tooth has been heavily restored with a dark filling and you are looking to improve the aesthetic appearance then a crown may be the more suitable treatment option.
The materials used to construct a crown are the same, strong materials used with veneers and look just very natural. The size, shape and colour are designed to match either your own existing teeth or can be customised to create a new smile makeover.
