What is the difference between a crown and veneer?

Veneers are primarily used for aesthetic reasons, while dental crowns can be used for both restorative and cosmetic treatments…

A dental crown is commonly used to help restore and maintain the integrity of a tooth by completely encasing it in the crown’s porcelain shell. Not only does this help keep the tooth secure and strong, it also looks just like a natural tooth.

Porcelain veneers are employed for changing the appearance of a smile only. They include other benefits since the porcelain is stain-resistant and strong, but have no other restorative function.
