Veneers Q & A

What are veneers?

Veneers are custom-made thin shells that your dentist attaches to the front sides of your teeth. They’re one of the most popular options for cosmetic dentistry because of their ability to cover up imperfections and blend in with the rest of your teeth.

Speaking of imperfections, veneers can cover almost any of them. As long as the imperfection in question is purely cosmetic, a veneer may be an option to hide it from view. You can get veneers to cover:

  • Cracks
  • Chips
  • Extrinsic stains
  • Intrinsic stains
  • Short teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth
  • Large or uneven spaces between teeth

Almost nobody is graced with teeth that look perfect, even if you’ve had braces or whitening treatments in the past. Veneers can make minor improvements to your smile that make a big difference for your entire appearance. 


What are veneers made of?

The team at Fibonacci Dental Studio custom creates your veneers to the exact measurements of your teeth using paper-thin porcelain. Despite their notable thinness, porcelain veneers are comparable to your natural teeth in strength. The team color matches your porcelain veneers to the shade of your natural teeth so they don’t stand out.


Are veneers permanent?

Veneers are considered semi-permanent. As long as you continue caring for your teeth as you normally would with a daily brushing and flossing routine, as well as regular dental cleaning appointments, you can expect your veneers to last for 10 years or longer. 

You should avoid biting down on popcorn seeds, hard candies, and other solid objects with the veneer. In the unlikely event that you chip or break a veneer, simply call Fibonacci Dental Studio for a repair or new veneer.


Am I a good candidate for veneers?

Veneers are best for teeth in the front of your mouth that are on display when you grin. If you have an unsightly tooth near the back of your mouth and want to improve its appearance, a crown is a better option. 

Additionally, veneers aren’t your best bet if you have tooth decay or gum disease. Instead, the team at Fibonacci Dental Studio might recommend protective crowns.

To inquire about veneers for one or more of your most unattractive teeth, call Fibonacci Dental Studio or book a consultation online today.
