  2. True or False: Placement takes two visits.
  3. True or False: We can address multiple cosmetic issues.
  4. True or False: Routine care can keep them strong.

Answer Key

  1. True. We begin by prepping your teeth, removing a small layer of enamel to make room for the new restorations. We then take detailed impressions of your prepared teeth, which will be used by expert ceramists to design and create the veneers.
  2. True. Preparing the teeth takes one visit. In between visits, the veneers will be created using porcelain, a strong and lifelike material that can withstand bite forces and mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel. During the second visit, we will check the fit of the completed restorations, make any necessary adjustments, and then place them using a powerful bonding agent.
  3. True. We can use them to mask permanent teeth stains, close gaps between teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and reshape malformed or damaged teeth. We can also correct the appearance of minor misalignment.
  4. True. You can keep them bright by brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes each session, as well as flossing every night before bed. We also suggest having your teeth cleaned every six months. If you have any questions about our cosmetic restorations, or if you’re ready to try them, then contact our office today.
