-Porcelain Veneers are indirect restorations which means they are custom crafted and need to be made in a dental laboratory after an impression is taken from the prepared tooth.
To ensure long lasting porcelain veneers a candidate for should have no grinding habit and subject teeth need to have no major decay or large previous restorations or fracture. If a tooth doesn’t meet any of the above essentials, porcelain Veneer is not a good restorative choice, and that tooth need to be restored with full porcelain crowns.
