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. (more…)

Dealing With Dentures That No Longer Feel Comfortable

When a person is given a denture to replace a row of teeth, they can find that the appliance is carefully designed to fit comfortably. While the appliance is removable, it can remain in place with relative ease thanks to natural suction, or through the use of epoxies. Unfortunately, that secure fit may not be permanent. Why would someone stop feeling confident in their ability to keep their dentures in position? This issue can arise not because your dentures have changed, but because jawbone deterioration has taken effect. After losing teeth, we no longer have a means of stimulating our jawbone while biting and chewing, and that leads to the loss of beneficial nutrients. Fortunately, implant-held dentures can both remain stable and provide stimulation so that your body once again sends nutrients to your jaw! (more…)

Ask Your Dentist How You Can Show Off A Whiter Smile!
