Creating A Plan To Address Issues With Dental Wear And Tear

While some people can maintain the condition of their teeth with relative ease, others can start to develop feelings of discomfort around the way they look because of visible dental wear and tear. Sometimes, a person’s enamel is relatively weak, which can lead to friction from biting and chewing causing more problems for them. In other cases, habits like nightly teeth grinding can be responsible for the noticeable changes that hurt their smile. Our Seattle, WA dental office is ready to help you take care of your smile if you are bothered by wear and tear. The right cosmetic dental procedure can make teeth look healthy, and even give you a more youthful appearance.

Putting A Stop To Problems That Increase Your Risk For Dental Wear And Tear

While some issues with wear and tear are difficult to avoid, you can make changes in your daily life that help you minimize your risk for further troubles. It is important to seek treatment if you think you might have a problem with nightly teeth grinding. This issue, also known as bruxism, can cause you to experience problems with chipped and cracked teeth, persistent jaw pain, and general wear and tear that can hurt your appearance. If this issue affects you, our practice can offer you a custom night guard to keep your teeth safe. To further protect you from the effects of dental wear and tear, make sure you are not in the habit of idly chewing on hard surfaces. People who tend to chew on ice cubes and other tough items can speed up the effects of damage, and hurt their teeth.

Restoring Your Smile Through Cosmetic Dental Work

The right cosmetic dental procedure can be effective for restoring the apparent health and shape of your teeth. By bonding porcelain veneers to the front of your teeth, your dentist can make changes that give your teeth a brighter appearance, and also restore their healthy ideal shapes. Because these restorations are made from porcelain, they are able to stay in good condition for many years.

Making Plans To Restore Damaged Teeth With Custom Crowns

If you have any teeth that have been chipped or cracked, or any that are less capable of providing support for your dental function, your dentist may suggest having them restored with dental crowns. Dental crowns can match the look of a healthy tooth, and they provide more protection that you can reasonably ask of a veneer.
