Quiz: How Do Veneers Transform Smiles?

We have an array of cosmetic treatments to help patients enjoy brighter and more attractive smiles. Many of them are designed to address one issue, such as teeth whitening, while some can actually correct a number of different concerns. With veneers, we can transform smiles by addressing multiple cosmetic issues.

  4. True or False: Routine care can keep them bright and strong.

Answer Key

  1. True. Placing veneers begins with preparation. We first remove a thin layer of enamel to make room for the restoration. We then take detailed impressions of the teeth, which will be used to design and fabricate the restorations. Once compete, you will return for a follow up visit, in which we place the completed veneers.
  2. True. While traditional veneers require removing a small amount of enamel, we do have a no-prep alternative. We use a much thinner veneer, which allows us to place them without removing enamel.
  3. True. We can use them to mask teeth stains, including permanent discoloration. We can also repair damaged teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and reshape malformed teeth. They can be placed to close gaps between teeth or even to correct the appearance of minor misalignment.
  4. True. You should continue to brush your teeth, veneers included, twice a day. You also need to floss each day before you go to bed. We also recommend seeing your dentist for routine dental cleanings, which remove plaque and help protect your new restorations from the risk of gingivitis, gum disease, or even tooth decay.
