So a lot of people come in and ask, "What's a crown? What's a veneer? What's the difference?" Well, generally speaking, a crown will cover an entire tooth where a veneer is really just more of the facing of a tooth. It changes the shape and color of a tooth and has a different purpose, basically, compared to a crown. Veneers are typically considered a permanent solution for a lot of cosmetic issues that a person may have such as crowding, such as staining of the teeth. A good candidate for veneers is really a couple of different things: someone that maybe has some mild crowding of the teeth, someone that maybe has staining of their teeth, maybe they have small chips or wear facets that are in their teeth. Any of those types of people could be a good candidate for veneers.
