Difference between Crowns and Veneers

Porcelain veneers are wafer thin shells placed over the front of your teeth to correct myriad cosmetic dental issues such as chips, cracks, and severe discoloration. Also known as “instant orthodontics,” porcelain veneers can greatly improve the appearance of teeth that are gapped, unevenly spaced, or irregularly sized as well. Veneers are a good solution to fix cosmetic issues.

Dental crowns are caps that can be placed over severely damaged or missing teeth. Like veneers, crowns can significantly improve the appearance of your smile. Crowns restore strength and function along with beauty, allowing them to serve several general dentistry purposes as well.

Creation Process

Porcelain veneers require two visits to our Bernardsville, New Jersey office. Veneers must be custom created by one of our dental lab partners to ensure optimal beauty and your absolute satisfaction. This process can take a few weeks, but is always well worth the wait.

We are pleased to offer CEREC one-day crowns, allowing Dr. Swaintek-Lamb to complete dental crown restorations in a single office visit. Because crowns are necessary for beauty and function, this option enables us to strengthen and perfect your smile without a waiting period, greatly increasing your comfort and convenience.
