which is better: porcelain veneers or tooth enamel?

Tooth enamel: Healthy tooth enamel is natural, it is best. Porcelain veneers, while recommended for some, most likely will need to be replaced someday. Any dental treatment is best done if there is a good reason for it. Otherwise, healthy tooth enamel is best.
