The materials used in making of Dental Veneers are either porcelain or resin composite. However Dentists and patients generally prefer a Porcelain Veneer because it has the ability to resist tooth stains better than resin composite. The other reason is that it gives the look and feel of natural teeth. Resin veneers are even thinner than porcelain veneers and they do not require substantial tooth removal. Eventually it is up to your dentist to decide which veneer suits you the best.
People who have stained teeth but cannot have their teeth whitened can benefit from veneers. Additionally, anyone with poorly shaped, slightly crooked, chipped, cracked, worn or crowded teeth may be a candidate, along with those who have slight gaps or erosion along the gumline.

Veneers are durable and stain-resistant, usually lasting many years before any modifications are needed generally longer than other procedures like whitening and bonding. It takes multiple visits to the dental clinic to complete the veneer process.
An impression of the teeth will be made so the veneer will fit accurately. To prepare for this, a thin layer of enamel is removed. A mold of the teeth is made and sent to the laboratory for the creation of the veneers. While you wait the two or three weeks it takes to custom fabricate your veneers, you'll be comfortable while wearing temporary veneers.
