When a tooth is severely damaged and requires a large filling, the dentist may offer a crown to restore the tooth. Commonly called caps, there are various crowns available to choose from. The function of a crown is to restore anatomy and aesthetics (in most cases).
Veneers are thin facings of porcelain, fabricated after the tooth or teeth are minimally prepared by the dentist. They are then fixed onto the tooth with a special ‘dental glue’.
