Answer Key


  1. True. Porcelain veneers can fix any teeth that are discolored by age, time, or lifestyle habits. Since they go on the outside of your teeth and can be any color you want, they can completely transform those discolored teeth.
  2. True. Porcelain veneers are designed to be shaped and sized to your mouth and the size of your natural teeth. If you have gaps between your teeth, veneers can be filed off less and make up for those gaps. We’ll let you have a smile and see if you’re happy! If you aren’t, we’ll make the adjustments until they are.
  3. True. While porcelain veneers go fully over the outside of your teeth, they can’t technically transform your misshapen tooth. If you don’t like the look of your tooth and it isn’t causing you physical harm, you’re able to just wear veneers and leave it where it is.
  4. True. If you have a chipped tooth, veneers go over it and make it so you don’t have to utilize the natural chipped tooth in daily life. If it’s broken or cracked, the veneer can help it stay together and keep the tooth from breaking further.
  5. True. While veneers can’t make your teeth grow back, they can prevent them from getting worn down further. Veneers are durable and won’t wear down as natural teeth will. You’ll get a new smile that doesn’t look like it has any wear at all!
