The quality of your smile can change over time, and you may not like the way it starts to look. Teeth stains are one issue that can hurt your appearance over time, but discoloration is not the only matter that should concern you. You may notice that your teeth look dull, or appear less uniform, due to wear and tear. This can be a problem for many people, but it can be particularly hard to avoid if you have a history of teeth grinding, or if you tend to idly chew on hard surfaces. The changes you experience can make you appear older or less healthy, which can understandably hurt your confidence. Your Shrewsbury, MA dentist can help you take care of this problem through cosmetic dentistry. When problems affect the shape and condition of teeth, we may recommend porcelain veneers to restore the way you look!
Minor Damage Can Start To Hurt Your Smile
Even if minor wear and tear has no impact on your oral health, it can have an unfortunate effect on your smile. Your smile can start to look asymmetrical if certain teeth stand out for being misshapen. General wear and tear can also be an issue because your teeth may start to look unhealthy or flat. When these problems occur, you may find that you are unable to feel comfortable with your smile without some form of cosmetic treatment.
What Makes Veneers Effective At Restoring Your Appearance?
Veneers are custom-made shells that can improve the way you look by restoring the shape, size, and color of any teeth that currently make you self-conscious. At an initial appointment, your dentist takes careful measurements of your teeth, talks with you about your goals for smile care, and performs minor preliminary work to make space for your restorations. Once they are ready, veneers are placed over the fronts of teeth. Their presence hides any visible flaws that were previously a concern. With their careful design, they can help you once again show off a smile that appears bright, symmetrical, and healthy!
Are Veneers Always Effective At Restoring Dental Damage?
In some circumstances, veneers may not be enough to restore a tooth that has been damaged. While veneers are effective at changing the way you look, they can do little to improve your ability to bite and chew. If there are concerns about your dental function because of damage, a custom dental crown can be used to help you. A crown completely covers a tooth, providing protection against harm as well as assistance with biting and chewing.
