Dental veneers are wafer-thin shells of tooth-colored materials, which are used for covering the front surface of teeth for cosmetic purposes and are also known as porcelain veneers. Veneers are used to change the color, length, shape or size of teeth and are bonded to the front surface of teeth.

Either porcelain or resin composite is the material, which is used for making the veneers. In comparison to resin veneers, stains are better resistant by porcelain veneers and the light-reflecting characteristics of natural teeth are better mimicked by them.
