Hi, I was wondering about veneers available. I' ve seen that people with porcelain veneers develop bluish discoloration towards the gum. Are there better quality veneers out there that stay natural looking and how much would it cost? Someone I know had really nice veneers done where you would never be able to tell that they' re not real teeth. Everything is perfect (in natural way) from the colour to the texture to the natural shine of the enamel and they don' t look thick and bulky like some veneer work I' ve seen. What would be the possible material that those veneers were made up of and how much would something like that cost?

porcelain crowns sometimes show the greysih area - which is the metal layer under the porcelain.
However new full ceramic/porcelain crowns eliminate the problem as they are metal free
