Crowns or Veneers


I just had 2 consultations here in Philly today. I clench my teeth and the front four are worn and thin after 10 years of this. They also affect my speech since they are a bit sensitive at times. One dentist suggested 8 Lumineers across the top row of teeth but later after e-mailing questions I was informed that they are wrap around veneers "essentially crowns" she said.

The second dentist recommended 4 crowns on the top front teeth but said my teeth won't be ground down to a nub. I'm leaning toward the crowns even though there's a lot of tooth sacrifice regardless of what he said because I'll still continue to clench my teeth and the crowns seem more likely to address functionality rather than appearance. Would you share your thoughts please?

Thank you,
