Aesthetic veneers are thin sheets that adhere to the vestibular - external - face of the patient's natural teeth in order to achieve a more harmonious appearance.
Its function is purely aesthetic and is a highly customizable treatment, allowing the modification of small defects related to the shape, color, size or position of the teeth.
On the other hand, dental crowns are covers that are placed on a real
tooth or an implant, in case the person has previously undergone this surgery.
The cover acts as a new and renewed dental piece, tailor-made to simulate the natural tooth and replace it for all purposes.
That is, it performs its function in everything related to appearance and chewing, since it also supports occlusal forces.
