Porcelain laminate veneers have been proved to be durable and an aesthetic treatment modality in dental clinics. Dental porcelain has become the most widely used material for the construction of crowns in dentistry because of its excellent esthetic properties and its ability to duplicate the appearance of natural tooth structure. It is a conservative and non-invasive technique treating aesthetic and functional problems in the anterior teeth. Nowadays, innumerable variety of dental ceramics are available for fabricating laminate veneers. It is imperative for clinicians to know and understand the composition and properties of these materials to choose the appropriate option according to clinical situations.
