my dentist has recommended I have lava crowns to replace existing crowns and veneers - don't know much about them - are they better than bonded crowns/ normal veneers?

There are many types of crowns and veners on the market. Lava being one of them.
The type of crown or veneer used depends on certain clinical reasons and what is best in the hand of the technician. When dealing with cosmetic dentistry it is important that a highly experienced technician (aswell as dentist) are used, as this will determine the final results.
