Do you love the idea of attaining a brilliant, completely made-over smile with porcelain veneers? If so, you have likely found out a good deal regarding the advantages associated with veneers. For instance, you are probably aware that these extremely thin ceramic shells are completely customizable, leaving you with a whiter, more uniform smile that addresses your preferences. What you may need a little help with, however, is determining whether you make a good candidate. Find out a bit more by breezing through a quick quiz.

Qualifying For Porcelain Veneers: True-or-False Quiz

  1. True or False: You will qualify for porcelain veneers only if you need to change at least five things about your smile.
  2. True or False: Patients whose visible smiles contain artificial tissue as a result of dental crowns, bridges, or other treatments cannot receive veneers.
  3. True or False: If you want veneers, it is important that your teeth are healthy.

Answer Key

  1. False. There is no particular way to quantify your desire or need for veneers. If you want a dramatically improved smile, we will be happy to discuss veneers as well as other cosmetic treatments to make sure you achieve the esthetic finish you desire.
  2. True. We bond veneers to tooth tissue, not to artificial tissue.
  3. True. We will examine your smile. If you are suffering from problems with your teeth like cavities, infection, or otherwise, we will first suggest restoring your oral health. Then, we will be happy to schedule your visit to receive cosmetic treatment.
