Astoria NY Porcelain Veneers Quiz

1. True or False: Veneers are custom-made.

2. True or False: Porcelain looks like natural tooth enamel.

3. True or False: Veneers address only teeth stains.

4. True or False: Porcelain veneers are a temporary solution.

Answer Key

1. True. Once Dr. Leibowitz decides veneers are the best choice for your smile, he will prepare your tooth by removing a minuscule layer of enamel. Then, he will take impressions of your teeth. An expert ceramist at a dental lab will complete your veneers using these impressions.

2. True. Porcelain is a stain-resistant material used to make crowns, inlays, onlays, and veneers. Porcelain reflects light in a similar manner as tooth enamel. The porcelain material can also be shaded to better blend with surrounding teeth.

3. False. While veneers can mask the appearance of teeth stains, veneers can also be used to repair cracked or chipped teeth, close gaps between teeth, lengthen worn down teeth, and even correct the appearance of minor misalignment. If you have any questions or would like to schedule a consultation to discuss receiving porcelain veneers, then talk to Dr. Leibowitz today.

4. False. Like other restorations, porcelain veneers are designed to last for several years. With proper care, you can enjoy long lasting and lifelike cosmetic restorations.
