Porcelain veneers are porcelain “flakes”, sometimes less than a millimetre thick, which are bonded to the front surfaces of the teeth with special powders, thus changing the shape, colour or texture of their surfaces.

A key advantage of porcelain veneers is that they require little to no preparation (grinding) of the tooth, unlike crowns where the preparation is much greater.

Also, due to their thinness and transparency, their aesthetics comes closer than any other restoration to the aesthetics of a natural tooth.

It should also be noted that the process of placing veneers is quite demanding and requires a lot of detailed work by both the dentist and the dental technician.
