What is the difference between a denial of discharge and a debt being nondischargeable?

When a debtor is denied a discharge under section 727 of the Bankruptcy Code, he or she obtains no discharge of debts in any way, shape, or form through the bankruptcy case. On the other hand, a determination of non-dischargeability under section 523 of the Bankruptcy Code impacts only the particular debt involved in the analysis.
