  1. A crown encases the entire tooth, a veneer just its front side. A fundamental difference between veneers and crowns is how much of the tooth they cover over. Crowns typically encase the entire tooth, whereas veneers only cover over its front surface (the side that shows when the person smiles).

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.

A partial crown is a type of dental restoration that is usually done for teeth that don't require a dental crown, but are too damaged for a dental filling.
