Patients often feel overjoyed to have found a way to receive a smile makeover within as few as two visits only to then realize there’s a lot they don’t know about veneers. Rather than allowing your enthusiasm to take a nosedive, we encourage you to become more familiar with the details.

Veneers Quiz Answer Key
- False. You will not need to rethink anything. Your porcelain veneers are similar to your natural teeth. One benefit of the way they are made is that you can care for them the same way you do for your natural teeth. Remember to brush twice daily with a soft-bristle brush and non-abrasive toothpaste. Floss one time a day, as well.
- True. Porcelain veneers certainly look like they may shatter before they are placed on your teeth. However, like your own natural smile, they will last for many years to come, partially as a result of their extraordinary durability and strength.
- False. A significant portion of your newly improved smile’s beauty will come from the fact that porcelain veneers offer a natural finish. This is the result of their makeup of multi-layered translucent porcelain – it reflects light in a way similar to natural tooth tissue.
