Can you tell us about metal supported porcelain veneers?

Metal-supported porcelain veneers, as the name suggests, are made by placing metal alloys under the porcelain during construction. In metal-supported coatings made using Chromium-Cobalt or Chromium-Nickel alloy, which are suitable for the tooth tissue and have the necessary durability, the porcelain placed on the metal is affected by the metal under it. Since the metal in the substructure does not transmit light, it creates a matte appearance and a dark line at the gingival level. For this reason, metal-supported veneers are not recommended for aesthetic reasons, especially for teeth in the anterior region.
