There are many ways to obtain a beautiful smile with the use of cosmetic dentistry. Drs. Stanley Hirst and Bethany Jensen of Minot, ND are dentists in the area who are committed to listening to patients and what they want and making their dreams a reality! At Broadway Family Dentistry, patients can ask about elective treatments such as porcelain veneers to enhance their smiles.
What are porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers, which may also be referred to as dental veneers, are porcelain restorations made to bond onto the front of a tooth to disguise imperfections. These veneers are made extremely thin and are placed onto teeth using a special bonding material. They look completely natural as they are created to match the patient’s existing teeth.
What are the benefits of porcelain veneers?
Porcelain veneers have several benefits to them. They are:
- Stain resistant
- Made to match the smile
- Easy to care for
How can I maintain my veneers?
One of the primary benefits of porcelain veneers is, unlike other materials such as composite resin, porcelain veneers do not stain. This means they do not need to be replaced as often as alternative treatments. Patients can keep their veneers in tip-top shape longer with proper care. This includes brushing and flossing the smile to maintain proper oral hygiene and avoid foods that are hard or sticky and can damage the restorations. By visiting the dentist regularly, patients can have their veneers and other restorations evaluated to make sure they are firmly in place and functioning as they should.
