Answer Key

  1. True. Porcelain is a very strong and translucent material and one that reflects light in a similar manner as natural tooth enamel. The material is also stain-resistant. We use them for our veneers, as well as our crowns, to ensure a durable and lifelike restoration.
  2. True. First, we must prepare the tooth. This involves removing a thin layer of enamel and taking detailed impressions of the tooth. A dental lab uses the impressions to design and fabricate the new restoration. Once completed, you return so the doctor can check the fit and make any necessary adjustments. Finally, the restoration is placed onto the front of the tooth.
  3. True. We can use them to mask permanent stains that might not respond to traditional teeth whitening methods. They can also be used to reshape a misshapen or worn down tooth. The restorations can also be employed to close gaps between teeth and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment.
  4. True. You simply care for them as your would your natural teeth, brushing and flossing regularly and having your teeth cleaned once every six months. If you have any questions about porcelain veneers then contact our office today.
