Why Do Dentists Always Recommend the Most Conservative Option when It Comes to Crowns Vs. Veneers?
I've genetic enamel hypoplasia and most of my teeth have been filled/patched up to some degree. I wanted to get crowns for my entire smile line but my prosthodontist insists that it's better to be conservative and do veneers for some that don't require crowns. However, with my hypoplasia and the rate my teeth deteriorate, it's only a matter of time before the back of the tooth may start to erode if I only protect the front with a veneer. Why not crown it and avoid future problems altogether?
