Porcelain Veneers are teeth coatings made of porcelain or ceramic material; they are used to rectify certain teeth conditions such as discoloration, gaps, cracks, chips and uneven teeth. These veneers are carefully placed on the surface of the affected teeth. They aid in concealing a person’s dental faults and creating a better appearance and as a result a more attractive smile. The veneers are designed to fit perfectly at the front of the teeth surface, and they are cemented onto the teeth by cosmetic dentists.
There are four different types of porcelain veneers, namely, feldspathic/stacked, pressed, leucite reinforced pressed and lithium disilicate porcelain veneers. Though they share certain similarities, they have different characteristics as in strength, shaping, color intensity, thickness and the patients’ dental requirements, which will determine the choice of veneer.
