Porcelain veneers involves bonding a thin laminated veneer made of porcelain to the etched enamel tooth surface. Its primary advantages are the beauty and durability of the material. Because porcelain doesn't stain like composite resin, it remains attractive for a much longer period of time. The procedure involves preparing the tooth and taking an impression to send to a dental laboratory. The laboratory fabricates the veneers using a pressed ceramic, which usually takes about two weeks. Temporary veneers are placed while the porcelain is being processed.
