A smile that used to appear flawless can gradually wear down over time and become less symmetrical while appearing less healthy. Some wear and tear can be a natural consequence of friction from biting and chewing food through the years. However, these problems can be worse for those who have softer enamel, and it can often affect those who have a history of grinding their teeth, particularly when that grinding or clenching happens while they sleep. Fortunately, cosmetic dental services provided at our Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA dentist’s office can be effective against gradual wear and tear. With porcelain veneers, we can restore the appearance of your smile by placing thin, custom restorations on the fronts of teeth to change their shape, size, and color!
Have Your Teeth Been Affected By Wear And Tear?
How noticeable are your issues with dental wear and tear? For some people, these changes can be difficult to notice, but others can grow concerned because they see the effect on their overall appearance. If your teeth appear flattened, if they seem generally misshapen, or if they show visible chipping, it can be hard to remain confident in your smile. These problems can make teeth look unhealthy, even if wear and tear is not serious enough to warrant restorative dental treatment. Fortunately, these issues can be put behind you with the right cosmetic procedure.
Scheduling Treatment With Dental Veneers
By treating your smile with porcelain veneers, you can hide the effects of wear and tear and make your smile appear younger, healthier, and more symmetrical. Careful planning efforts will take place before your smile is restored with veneers. That time we spend planning can ensure that your veneers are shaped properly, are correctly sized, and feature the right tint to make your desired improvements. In addition to carefully measuring your teeth, we can perform minor preparatory work to ensure there is space for your veneers. Once they are ready to be placed, you will come in for a second appointment where these restorations will be bonded to your tooth structure.
What Other Services Help With Gradual Dental Wear And Tear?
It may be necessary to place a custom dental crown on a tooth if wear and tear has affected its health, or negatively impacted its ability to absorb bite pressure. We do use technology in our office to produce same-day crowns, so this work can be completed in a shorter time than you realize. To address minor issues, we may discuss the benefits of tooth bonding treatment, which relies on a special resin material instead of custom restorations to make changes. This substance is less durable than the porcelain used to make veneers, but it can produce exciting results in as little as one appointment.
