Want an easy way to test your veneer candidacy? Take this simple, 2-minute quiz to see if veneers are right for you.

What imperfections do you want to address?

  1. Minor dental damage, like enamel erosion and chips in the front teeth

  2. Stubborn stains that won’t go away with regular whitening treatments

  3. Misshapen front teeth, including short or crooked teeth

  4. Large gaps between the front teeth

  5. All of the above

Review Your Answer

If you answered E, then veneers may be right for you. However, if you want to address more complex cosmetic issues, then you may want to explore advanced treatments, like Invisalign® or dental crowns

Do you grind your teeth?

  1. Yes

  2. No

  3. I don’t know

Review Your Answer

Sleep bruxism is a tooth-destroying condition that affects nearly 13% of the adult population. The condition is characterized by the unintentional clenching and grinding of teeth while asleep.

Not only does bruxism destroy the structure of natural teeth, but it also imperils the strength and longevity of veneers. Subsequently, patients with a history of teeth grinding may not be ideal candidates for veneer treatment. 

Are you at least 18 years old?

  1. Yes

  2. No

Review Your Answer

Technically, there is no age limit for veneer treatment. However, our Huntington Beach dentist recommends that patients wait until they are at least 18 before pursuing veneers. Otherwise, veneer treatment may not be able to keep up with a still-developing smile.

Are you ready for a lifelong commitment?

  1. Yes

  2. No

Review Your Answer

Veneer treatment requires the removal of a small amount of dental enamel from the front surface of the teeth. This means that the treated teeth require constant protection, whether from veneers or another protective covering (like a dental crown).

So, if veneers get damaged or require replacement, patients must repair or replace them. Luckily, dental veneers are uniquely durable, with many lasting for decades after treatment.

How quickly do you want to upgrade your smile?

  1. Immediately

  2. I can wait for a little while, but I want a solution in the meantime 

  3. I’m willing to play the waiting game

Review Your Answer

Traditional veneers may take approximately three weeks for fabrication and application. If you answered A or B, then you may want to pursue temporary and removable veneers. Temporary veneers protect and upgrade your smile while you wait for your final prosthetics. Removable veneers are a cost-effective alternative to traditional, permanent veneers.
