Answer Key

  1. True. During this free exam, we will look at your smile to assess the cause and severity of your cosmetic concerns. Then, we will discuss your smile goals. From there, we can decide which procedures will be best for improving your smile’s beauty.
  2. True. First, we will prepare the teeth, which involves removing a thin layer of enamel. We will then take digital impressions of the teeth. Since we use intraoral cameras, there is no need for sticky material to bite on. We can create a 3D model using the images gathered of your teeth.
  3. True. Using the materials gathered, we can then design and fabricate the veneers. They will be made from porcelain, a lifelike material that reflects light in a similar manner as enamel. In addition, the material is also strong and stain-resistant.
  4. True. Once placed, they can reshape malformed or damaged teeth. They can also mask teeth stains and close any gaps between the teeth. Finally, we can also correct the appearance of minor misalignment. If you have any questions or if you would like to learn more about our cosmetic procedures then please contact our office today.
