Is a veneer better than a dark line on a crown will it look fake

Q. If there is an incomplete front teeth , and a crown was put on it but there is a dark line near the gum that makes it look not good , is the veneer the best solution? will it look fake? is it durable? P

A. Dear P

It sounds like you asking me if there is a way to make your crown more cosmetic / attractive. The grey line you see is often metal which is used underneath the porcelain. The solution would be to place an all ceramic porcelain (metal free) crown which woud look much more natural. Since the tooth already has a crown you could only replace it with another crown.
I hope this helps
