Bothered By Teeth That Look Jagged? Dental Veneers Can Help!

Healthy teeth that look jagged or uneven can be a problem for your smile, even if they are not causing problems for your oral health. Teeth can start to take on a jagged or awkward shape if you have a tendency to grind your teeth, or because of gradual wear and tear from years of biting and chewing. With that said, some people have naturally occurring problems with tooth shape or size that make teeth look awkward and uneven. Porcelain veneers can actually be effective at resolving many different issues with tooth shape and size, including problems with teeth that have a jagged or uneven look to them.

Why Am I Having A Harder Time Keeping My Dentures In Place?

If you have a set of removable dentures, you should feel confident that they will remain in place throughout your day. For many people, that confidence can begin to wane over time. For those who have been dependent on dentures for a longer period of time, discomfort can become a concern because jawbone deterioration changes the support you enjoy for your prosthetic appliance. To enjoy lasting support from your dentures, you can look into hybrid dentures, or implant-held dentures. Hybrid dentures depend on a sequence of implants that will be placed directly in your jaw. With their support, dentures can remain secure, and they can even provide more support so that you can bite and chew with greater ease! Our Shrewsbury/Grafton, MA dental office is ready to help you if you wish to learn how you can make the move to implant-held dentures. (more…)

Losing one tooth can create big problems for a person, but significant tooth loss can be especially difficult to deal with.

One thing we can do is discuss the inclusion of dental implants in plans to fully restore your smile.
