Target Cosmetic Problems Caused By Dental Wear And Tear

How has your smile changed over the years? Even when you practice good oral hygiene on a daily basis and attend regular dental exams, you can see changes over time because of gradual wear and tear. Our teeth perform a tough job several times a day, and as time passes more biting and chewing leads to more friction that can affect your enamel. Simply put, your teeth may look older because of visible wear and tear. For those who are bothered by this issue, or those affected by wear and tear from a history of teeth grinding, can benefit from cosmetic dentistry. With porcelain veneers, we can restore the quality of your smile by restoring the shape and color of teeth that appear older or worn down.

Enamel Wear And Tear Can Age Your Smile

If your teeth look flattened, misshapen, or generally worn down, your smile can age you in the eyes of others. While friction can lead to some issues with wear and tear over time, some individuals will have more difficulties than others. This can be attributed to naturally softer enamel, poor oral hygiene, or issues with teeth grinding and clenching. With that said, you can be less interested in why your teeth appear worn and older, and more interested in what treatment can do for you.

Using Porcelain Veneers To Restore Your Smile And Improve The Condition Of Your Teeth

By capping teeth with custom porcelain veneers, we can hide flaws caused by gradual wear and tear, issues with discoloration from enamel erosion, and other problems that can form over time. Veneers have to be custom-made for your teeth to ensure that they fit properly and look natural after they are set in position. These shells are placed over the fronts of your teeth, leaving the surrounding structure alone. While only partial coverage of your enamel is required, veneers can still have a significant overall effect on the way you look. Once in position, they can make your teeth look brighter, healthier, and more uniform.

Other Services That Address Cosmetic Issues That Develop Gradually

Over time, we can experience many issues that will change the quality of our smile. Our cosmetic dental services aim to make positive changes while still preserving your appearance. If you have accumulated teeth stains that dull your smile and make you look older and less healthy, we can talk to you about teeth whitening treatment. We can actually address problems with the skin around your smile, too. Patients concerned about wrinkles forming when they smile can benefit from Botox or dermal fillers.
