Same Thing: A crown typically covers the whole tooth all the way around down to the gums. A veneer on the other hand typically only covers the front of the tooth.

Veneer Or Jacket: These are 2 names for the same thing. These are usually made of ceramic or porcelain. A full veneer and a jacket crown is like saying soft drinks and sodas. There is a new term coming out also which is a crowneer. It really can also depend how much tooth structure is being cover with porcelain or ceramic.

Just variations: A porcelain veneer is a thin ceramic shell like a fingernail that is bonded to the front of the tooth to correct shape, size or color. Full porcelain or the newer ceramic crowns are a tooth colored covering of the complete top of tooth which can protect and change the shape or color permanently. They are also called jacket crowns. Metal crowns can be covered or veneered with porcelain on front.

Crowns: In all cases, a crown covers the entire tooth. The difference may be in the types of material used and the amount of tooth structure removed. Some crowns are porcelain bonded to metal/gold. Some crowns are all porcelain or Zirconia. For more information, talk to your dentist.
