The difference between San Antonio dental implants and dental veneers is sometimes misunderstood. Here’s how it works:
- A dental implant replaces a tooth that is already missing or is too far gone to save. The implant will restore the root of the missing tooth and allow for a restoration, like a crown, to replace the tooth.
- A dental veneer is used when the tooth is there but looks bad. A good veneer can last for decades, so we use this option when the tooth is sound but needs a facelift. We will always prioritize keeping your natural tooth in place whenever possible.
