Veneers vs. Crowns: Which Is Right for Your Smile?

Attaining the smile of your dreams may be achieved with the placement of beautiful, lifelike porcelain veneers or dental crowns. Each serves to fulfill a unique purpose in transforming your smile, yet may also be incorporated into a treatment plan addressing full mouth reconstructive needs, and improvements in both oral function and esthetics. In either case, veneers and crowns rejuvenate your appearance, breathing life back into your smile. A cosmetic dental consultation with Dr. Kayvon Javid or Dr. Mariam Nadi can reveal whether veneers, crowns or a combination of the two are the right fit for reaching your smile goals.

Veneers and Crowns Deliver Unique Benefits

  • Porcelain Veneers
    • Thin, shell-like porcelain mimicking natural tooth structure, veneers completely cover the front surfaces of your teeth to create an even, balanced grin. You may be an ideal candidate for this permanent cosmetic procedure if you have stained, uneven, slightly spaced or crowded teeth that show when you smile.
  • Dental Crowns
    • A tooth suffering significant damage, such as decay or breakage, requires full coverage and protection to fully restore its appearance and function. Crowns are highly durable, beautiful cosmetic restorations blending seamlessly with surrounding teeth for improved oral health and natural esthetics.

Esthetic, Long-Lasting Restorative Solutions

While dental crowns are placed anywhere in the mouth, veneers are reserved for front teeth as well as canines and premolars, if these teeth show when you smile. Both crowns and veneers are highly esthetic, long-lasting, natural-looking solutions for creating a perfect, healthy smile. Your specific restorative, functional needs and smile aspirations determine whether our doctors recommend crowns or veneers, or both, for your individualized treatment plan.

Committed to Advanced Training, Dental Excellence

When creating your new smile, seeking treatment from an experienced dentist is not only important in understanding all of the options available to you, but in receiving the best care possible. With over 25 years of experience proudly serving their community with genuine care and concern for improving oral health, Drs. Javid and Nadi have gathered the advanced dental training and skill to offer unwavering commitment to dental excellence, and to your smile. That is why they hold professional memberships with numerous organizations including the American Academy of Facial Esthetics and American Dental Association, and Dr. Javid served as a member of the University of Southern California’s Department of Advanced Education in General Dentistry.
