Porcelain veneers are thin shells of porcelain adhered to the outer-surface of the tooth.
Porcelain has a translucent quality that is quite similar to tooth enamel. Porcelain is a far stronger material than composite resin (even with the improvements in resin materials over the years). Most dentists agree that porcelain veneers offer the most natural, tooth-like aesthetics.

MAC Veneers are highly aesthetic porcelain veneers. They are made from high strength pressed ceramic porcelain. Pressed ceramic veneers are stronger and more resistant to staining than traditional feldspathic porcelain veneers.
