Why would I choose porcelain veneers over crowns?

Porcelain Veneers Vs. Crowns | St. Paul Dentist St. Paul dentist, Dr. Terry O'Neill uses both porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers to give great results. Each have their benefits. A dental crown covers your entire tooth structure and adds support when you bite and chew. It does, however, require the removal of more of your tooth structure to create enough space for the dental crown. In teeth visible when you smile, it is beneficial to use all porcelain crowns so that a dark margin is not visible at the gumline. This is common with metal and porcelain fused crowns.

Since porcelain veneers only require the removal of the front of your tooth structure, they leave more of your natural tooth structure intact. They contain no metal and are very natural in appearance. Often, patients opt for veneers on their front teeth because of their esthetic results. What will work best for you depends largely on the extent of the image to your tooth and your personal preference. We also take into account your bite and how your teeth come together. Anytime you have dentistry that affects your bite, it must be closely evaluated so that you can enjoy the best, long-term results.

If you would like to make changes to your smile and need a dentist in St. Paul, give us a call! We are happy to help.
