Quiz: Life With Porcelain Veneers

If you are unsure of how the presence of porcelain veneers will affect your oral care needs, you may hesitate to inquire about them. The idea that your veneers are permanently placed on your teeth can give you pause. You may wonder how you protect them from harm, how they impact what you eat and drink, and how your brushing and flossing habits might be impacted. What you should know is that your daily dental care responsibilities will see little change after this cosmetic dental procedure. You should be thoughtful about what you choose to eat and drink, but you should know that your veneers are designed to resist staining, and are built to last.

Questions:

True Or False: If you forget to take your veneers off before you eat, you might damage them!

True Or False: Whitening agents will not work on veneers the way they work on teeth. This is why you should be mindful of dark or color-rich items.

True Or False: A non-abrasive toothpaste can be a better option for you after receiving veneers, as this will help you avoid scuffing them.

Answers:

False! You will not be able to remove your veneers on your own. Because they are permanently in place, they are constructed to exhibit remarkable durability.

True! Your veneers can resist stains, but too many dark or color-rich foods can lead to discoloration. If this does take place, your dentist will not be able to use a professional whitening treatment to remove the stains.

True! While you will still brush your teeth like normal, and continue to floss, a non-abrasive toothpaste can lower the risk for causing scuffs on your veneers.
