True or False Quiz

True or False: Porcelain veneers look just like natural teeth.

True or False: Porcelain veneers cover your whole tooth like a dental crown and, therefore, are prepared in a similar fashion.

True or False: Veneers are usually only used to whiten teeth for people suffering from intrinsic stains.

True or False: Veneers are easy to care for.

Answers:

True: Because the translucency and opalescence of dental porcelain is similar to natural dentition, it is nearly impossible to tell the difference between your natural teeth and porcelain veneers.

False: Dental veneers are an ultra-thin ceramic shell that are placed over only the front of your teeth. Although a tiny bit of the surface of your tooth will be removed to accommodate the thickness of the veneer, your tooth will not require as much preparation as with dental crowns.

False: Veneers can be used to address intrinsic stains, but they can also address a variety of other cosmetic problems, and even several at once. For instance, if you have one chipped tooth, another tooth with pits or another type of blemish, and a few teeth that are worn down or too short, veneers can solve all those problems with a single treatment. Veneers can treat the following:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Alter the shape, size, and length of your teeth
  • Cover chips, cracks, craze lines and more
  • Provide uniformity
  • Whiten your smile

True. Veneers are cared for the same as your natural teeth. Brush with a soft-bristle toothbrush for two minutes twice a day, floss daily, and visit your dentist twice a year for a professional checkup and cleaning.
