A dental veneer can be a beautiful restoration for a tooth. It is a thin resin or porcelain shell placed over a tooth.
Porcelain veneers work for many of the same problems that crowns do. There are a few benefits that a dental crown can provide.
Potentially the largest benefit of a crown is the strength that it offers a tooth. If the center of the tooth is suspect to fracture, the crown will accept much of the pressure forced.
The crown covers the tooth completely and eliminates the possibility of the natural tooth decaying.
