Answer Key

  1. True. We will first prepare the teeth by removing a thin layer of enamel. We will then take detailed impressions of the teeth, which is used by experts at a dental lab to design and create the new restorations. This process ensures the veneer blends with the smile. The patient then returns for a second visit, during which we make any adjustments necessary before placing the veneer with a powerful bonding agent.
  2. True. They are made from ceramic, a strong material that is stain-resistant and able to mimic the appearance of tooth enamel. We can also shade them to ensure they blend with the smile. We want them to look natural and match your other teeth.
  3. True. We can use them to mask teeth stains, repair chipped teeth, reshape malformed teeth, and close gaps between the teeth. They can also correct the appearance of minor misalignment. Being able to correct so many different issues with one restoration can allow us to transform your smile.
  4. True. You should take steps to brush your teeth twice a day and floss your teeth before bed. You also need to have your teeth cleaned twice a year to remove plaque and safeguard your new restorations.
