Quiz: Solving Esthetic Smile Problems With Porcelain Veneers

How much good can the placement of porcelain veneers do for your smile? If you want to do something about unsightly dental flaws, they can be of great value to you. Veneers are custom-made for your teeth, and bonded permanently to their fronts. Once in place, they can improve on the color of your smile, while also hiding chips, cracks, and other issues that leave them in poor esthetic condition. In some cases, you may even be able to hide issues with improper spacing and overlaps. Cosmetic dental work is intended to make dramatic improvements to your smile – with veneers, you can see many improvements with just one appointment.

Questions:

True Or False: Porcelain veneers are only recommended for addressing dental discoloration, and hiding spacing issues. They are not useful if you want to address the condition of teeth.

True Or False: Your dentist will take measurements of your teeth during your initial visit, as the veneers you receive are custom-made.

True Or False: Porcelain veneers can be useful if you are trying to improve a smile that is affected by intrinsic discoloration.

Answers:

False! If you have teeth that are affected by issues with their shape or condition, veneers can help. Once in place, a veneer can make a tooth appear flawless. It should be noted that problems affecting the health of your tooth can require restorative dental work, and not cosmetic treatment.

True! By ensuring your veneers fit precisely over your teeth, your dentist can make sure their presence looks natural, and that there is no visible space where your teeth still show.

True! Intrinsic discoloration can be tough to treat because whitening agents can fall short in your efforts to address the color of your smile. Fortunately, your dentist can make improvements by providing you with veneers, which can hide this form of discoloration.
