  • Which lasts longer crowns or veneers?

    Veneers are usually done on anterior teeth, the ones in the front part of your mouth, the upper six or lower six teeth. If these teeth are broken down or slightly crooked. Some times veneers are recommended. However a veneer only covers the front, side and tip of the tooth. Over the years the veneer, because it is so thin, may chip or brake or the back part of the tooth that is not covered may decay. On the other hand a crown covers the entire tooth with the same ceramic material and is much thicker and stronger and may last much longer. READ MORE
