The answer is "No". Most countertops of the materials listed above do have inherent qualities in them to protect themselves from damage. You can though never predict the gale wind that could bring your countertop down to dust! That said, treating natural countertops can make it resistant to any damage. First things, most natural stone countertops are heavy. The heaviness causes them to be scratch resistant apart from being resistant to stains.

White Portland is the only way to get a truly white concrete countertop. There are a variety of techniques used to achieve a certain color in a concrete countertop. One of the most basic methods is adding a pigment into the concrete mix before the countertop is poured. These colors are often called integral colors or integrated colors. Integral colors add color throughout the countertop, making the center of the countertop the same color as the surface. This is especially important if any grinding or polishing is to occur after the pour. Post-pour colors will grind off, exposing the original color of the concrete. Some post-pour concrete coloring techniques include stained concrete countertops, tinted concrete countertops, and dyed concrete countertops. Each coloring method will result in a uniquely different result.
