I have been trying very hard to decide which dental lab to use for my porcelain veneers. I heard it is the lab that makes them. Do you have any recommendations? Which one do you use?

I like the spirit with which you are trying to do your homework. It is apparant that you are a very diligent and competent woman. I’d like to suggest, though, that you are researching the wrong thing. While it is the lab that makes the porcelain veneers, all they do is follow the very specific instructions of the dentist. The key is to get a skilled cosmetic dentist, who has an artistic eye.
Two dentists can use the same lab and end up with completely different results. Also, the more artistic dentists, have very specific ideas about which labs they prefer to work with. So, even if you picked a lab, when you got to the dentist he or she may tell you that they’ll use a different one.
