Crowns Vs Veneers – What’s the Difference?

Crowns Vs Veneers – What’s the Difference?


Porcelain Veneers and Crowns are popular Dental Treatments to enhance the appearance and function of smiles. So, what’s the difference between Porcelain Veneers and Crowns? In this article, we will outline the difference between the two treatments, results and cost of Crowns vs Veneers.

What’s the Difference Between Veneers and Crowns?


Both Crowns and Dental Veneers provide natural-looking and effective results. While Veneers and Crowns can look similar to the eye, they serve slightly different treatment purposes.

What Are Dental Crowns?

Crowns are natural-looking ceramic Dental Treatments that cover the whole tooth enamel. Crowns are strong and durable and are best made from Porcelain or Zirconia. Dental Crowns are often used to improve the appearance and longevity of a chipped or decaying tooth. As it covers the entire tooth, it protects it from further decay and improves the strength and longevity of the tooth.

What Are Dental Veneers?

Porcelain Veneers cover only the front surface of the tooth (the side presented when you smile), while crowns cover the entire tooth. Porcelain Veneers are thinner than Crowns, therefore can be slightly less durable. With Porcelain Veneer Treatment, very little of the tooth surface needs to be removed to place the Veneers. Whereas, more tooth enamel is reduced before placing Crowns. Porcelain Veneers are typically used as an aesthetic treatment, whereas a Dental Crown both protects the tooth and enhances the smile.

Are Crowns or Veneers Better?


Both Crowns and Veneers are effective treatments to enhance the appearance of your smile. Which Dental Treatment is best for you will depend on your oral condition, which can be determined by your Dentist.

The main point of difference is that Porcelain Veneers primarily provide aesthetic improvements, whereas Dental Crowns offer tooth protection and improve appearance.

Crowns Vs Veneers – Which Treatment Is Best for Me?


Whether Porcelain Veneers or Crowns are best for you will depend on the condition of your teeth, and what your Dentist determines is most suitable.

Porcelain Veneers Treatment

Porcelain Veneers are bonded on teeth that otherwise have a healthy underlying tooth structure. Dental Veneer Treatment works well in concealing Dental imperfections and issues that are difficult to fix through other Dental procedures. These conditions include stubborn Dental stains that cannot be lightened using teeth whitening procedures, or cavities that are filled but still noticeable.

Porcelain Veneers can be used to correct:

  • Spaced teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Discoloured or yellow teeth
  • Uneven teeth
  • Eroded teeth
  • Poorly shaped teeth
  • Fillings with poor aesthetics


Porcelain Crowns Treatment

Porcelain Crowns are usually used to strengthen decayed and broken teeth or to cover a large filling in a tooth. They are also recommended if the biting surfaces of your teeth have worn out as a result of frequent teeth grinding. 

Porcelain Crowns can be used to correct:

  • Discoloured teeth
  • Worn teeth
  • Broken or fractured teeth
  • A large cavity
  • Spaced teeth
  • Crowded teeth

Price Difference Between Veneers and Crowns


The price of Porcelain Veneers and Porcelain Crowns will depend on the materials used, the preparation required, the number of teeth receiving treatment and the quality of treatment. Here at Brisbane Smiles, we use the highest quality materials and treatments are hand-crafted in our in-house Dental Laboratory

The cost of a crown can go up from $2106 per Porcelain Crown. The cost of Porcelain Veneers can range from $1800-$2200 per tooth. At Brisbane Smiles, we can provide you with a customised Price Estimate and Payment Plan options at your Consultation Appointment.

Front Teeth Crowns vs Veneers


Porcelain Crowns and Veneers are treatments often used to improve the appearance of front teeth. When considering front teeth crowns vs veneers, your Dentist will take into consideration the health of your front teeth and your preferences.

Dental Crowns may be your best treatment option if your front tooth is decaying, cracked, damaged or has had a root canal. This is because the tooth enamel is weaker and requires protection to increase its longevity. 

If you are simply looking to enhance the aesthetics of your front teeth, Porcelain Veneers may be your best option. Porcelain Veneers will cover the front of the tooth so that the front-facing tooth shape and shade will be improved.

Do Crowns or Veneers Last Longer?


Treated with high-quality materials and an experienced Dentist, both Porcelain Crowns and Veneers can be long-lasting solutions. Paired with regular check-ups and proper Dental hygiene, Porcelain Crowns are durable and can last from 15 years up to a few decades. With the proper care and Dental Hygiene routine, Porcelain Veneers can last up to 20 years.

Dental Crown & Veneer Materials


With recent innovations, Dentists now have many options to create highly aesthetic, durable and functional Veneers and Crowns. The two most common and highest quality materials for Veneers and Crowns are e.max Porcelain and Zirconia.

e.max Porcelain

An e.max metal-free crown is made from lithium disilicate, a glass-ceramic known for its strength, durability and translucent colour. It provides a natural and aesthetic look while also ensuring the long life of your Crown or Veneer.


Zirconia Crowns use the toughest grade porcelain as a substructure. It is a popular choice among Dentists as it lasts longer than other types of Crowns. It also requires very little of the original tooth to be reduced, lowering the time needed to prepare the tooth for the procedure.

Depending on your case and expectations, the Brisbane Smiles expert Dentists can suggest which material will work best for you.
