Have you ever heard of porcelain veneers? A breakthrough cosmetic procedure, porcelain veneers can instantly rejuvenate your smile. In today’s blog, your Rochester dentist, Dr. Gilly Calcagno, provides a fun and informative quiz to explain how porcelain veneers can return your smile to full function and beauty.
Porcelain Veneer Quiz
1. True or False: Veneers are thin shells of porcelain.
2. True or False: Porcelain veneers mimic tooth enamel.
3. True or False: Veneers address several common dental imperfections.
4. True or False: Veneers provide decades of quality restoration.
1. True. Using an impression taken of your mouth, an expert ceramist will create your custom-made veneers from dental porcelain. Your Rochester MN cosmetic dentist will then place your veneers using a powerful bonding agent.
2. True. Porcelain reflects light in a similar manner as tooth enamel. As a result of this translucent effect, your veneers will look completely natural. Veneers can also be shaded to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth.
3. True. Porcelain veneers allow Dr. Calcagno to repair chipped or cracked teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, close gaps between teeth, correct the appearance of misalignment, and mask permanent teeth stains.
4. True. With proper care, your veneers can last for decades. Simply maintain routine dental habits, including brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing once. You should also attend regular checkups and cleanings, which allow Dr. Calcagno to evaluate the state of your restorations and keep your smile healthy and bright.
