    You are correct, porcelain veneers are better in quality and look nicer than composite veneers. However composite veneers can still be worth it but you need to remember that they will most likely need to be changed to porcelain veneers at some stage. This can be 5-10 years later. Composite veneers can also be less destructive on teeth so it is often a good place to start. It also will depend on your teeth which option will work better for you
