Quiz: Porcelain Veneers Candidacy

Do you love the idea of completely making over your smile with porcelain veneers? If so, you must have been thinking about cosmetic care for a decent amount of time to have settled on a particular treatment that you like. While you may feel enamored with the benefits, you may not feel quite so strongly about visiting us for a consultation. We find that this often happens because patients are worried about their candidacy. First, keep in mind that if veneers aren’t the best choice for you, a different treatment will be. In the meantime, see how much you know with a fun quiz.

Porcelain Veneers Candidacy: True-or-False Quiz

  1. True or False: You can receive porcelain veneers only on your natural teeth. If you are looking for a way to improve the appearance of a dental crown, you will need a different solution.
  2. True or False: If your teeth need protective coverage and esthetic improvement, you likely make a good candidate for veneers.
  3. True or False: We suggest porcelain veneers for individuals who have a long list of complaints regarding the beauty of their smiles.

Answer Key 

  1. True. You will make a good candidate for veneers only if you are seeking a way to dramatically transform the appearance of your own teeth. We cannot apply veneers to artificial teeth.
  2. False. If you need full coverage as well as an improved appearance, you may require porcelain crowns. However, veneers are strictly cosmetic in nature, so we cannot place them over unhealthy teeth.
  3. True. If you are suffering from a single chip or you just want a whiter smile, you may make a better candidate for other cosmetic treatments that are not as comprehensive in nature.
