Winchester veneers here refer to dental veneers which are normally used to cover the front surface of the tooth. They are mainly wafer thin shells of tooth colored materials and are normally used for cosmetic purposes. Winchester veneers can be used to change the shape, size, length and color of the teeth while they are bonded to the teeth surface.
Veneers can be made from resin composite or porcelain but each of these materials has their own strengths and weaknesses. For example, a look at resin veneers shows that they are thinner and would require much less of the surface of the tooth to be removed before they are placed. However, this is not actually so for the porcelain type veneers. Therefore, the choice to use any of them will depend on the issues and it should be left to the dentist to decide.
