Why Have My Teeth Started To Look Worn?
Our teeth have an important, but difficult, job. Breaking down food so that it can be safely swallowed creates friction that can steadily affect the condition of your enamel. Over time, this can make teeth appear flat, dull, or otherwise misshapen in ways that hurt your appearance. People who grind their teeth on a frequent basis, typically while they sleep, can be more vulnerable to visible changes. You can also face greater risks for visible wear and tear if you often chew on hard substances, like pen caps.
Using Cosmetic Procedures To Revitalize The Look Of Your Smile
Cosmetic dental work can give you improvements that make you appear younger and healthier. Many people who have experienced dental wear and tear have been impressed at the positive effects that porcelain veneers can have on the way they look. When your veneers are put in place, they can hide flaws that concern the shape and size of teeth. They can also help with discoloration, including discoloration from enamel erosion.
Can Dental Wear And Tear Affect My Oral Health?
Will you need restorative dental work to address the problems you have with dental wear and tear? In some cases, this may be the appropriate response to your troubles. If this is the case for you, we can talk to you about using lifelike dental crowns to restore teeth in poor condition. This can improve the way you look while also making it easier for you to practice basic biting and chewing functions without difficulty.
