Porcelain Veneers Quiz

  1. True or False: Veneers are custom-made.
  2. True or False: Porcelain looks like natural tooth enamel.
  3. True or False: You can change the appearance of the tooth.
  4. True or False: Veneers require minimal maintenance.

Answer Key

  1. True. Each restoration will be custom-made to ensure a lifelike appearance. The process begins with preparation: We will remove a thin layer of enamel. Afterwards, we will take impressions of the tooth. Using these impressions, a dental lab will fabricate the restoration from porcelain.
  2. True. We use this material for veneers, crowns, inlays, and onlays because the material mimics the translucent appearance of tooth enamel. In addition, porcelain can withstand major bite forces and is naturally stain-resistant.
  3. True. We may place a veneer in order to reshape a damaged or malformed tooth. They can also lengthen a worn down tooth, close gaps between teeth, mask permanent discoloration, and even correct the appearance of minor alignment issues. Once in place, they constantly change how your tooth looks.
  4. True. To care for your veneers you simply need to maintain good oral hygiene. You should brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once a day. We also recommend routine dental cleanings, which not only improves oral hygiene, but also allows the doctor to assess the state of your restoration.
