How Porcelain Veneers Help With Dental Wear And Tear

man with happy, confident smileBy looking into cosmetic dentistry, you can find that treatments are capable of addressing a range of concerns. In addition to helping with naturally occurring flaws with the shapes and size of teeth, a procedure can address the gradual changes to a smile brought on by dental wear and tear. After years of use, teeth can start to show the effects of friction as they start to look dull or misshapen. If you are someone who struggles with bruxism, your history of teeth grinding may have made these issues more pronounced at an earlier age. Sunny Smiles can provide porcelain veneers to cover this wear and tear, giving you a smile that appears youthful, healthy, and uniform!

Wear And Tear On Teeth Can Gradually Change Your Smile

Some degree of wear and tear may be unavoidable, but this problem can affect people at different degrees, and at different ages. Someone who takes good care of their teeth and has naturally strong dental enamel can see relatively small changes over many years. Another person might notice changes at an earlier period in their life, creating concerns about how their smile is affecting their perceived age and health. While it could be the result of relatively weak enamel or poor oral hygiene habits, you could be seeing these problems earlier in life because of an unresolved teeth grinding problem.

The Link Between Bruxism And Cosmetic Problems

Bruxism often affects people during the night. This condition can cause them to grind or clench their teeth as they sleep, which steadily wears down their enamel. You may notice that your teeth are starting to appear flat, misshapen, or worn down. Your condition can also leave you with lingering pain in your face and jaw, which can worsen over time. To stop bruxism from doing more harm to your teeth, we can provide you with a custom appliance that you wear to prevent grinding.

Veneers Allow Us To Resolve Multiple Cosmetic Problems With One Treatment

Porcelain veneers only require a conservative amount of work on your tooth structure to make meaningful changes. Unlike dental crowns, which provide full coverage for teeth above the gum line, veneers only cover front surfaces. Preparing a person’s smile for veneers takes less work, and these slim restorations occupy less space, which leaves more of your healthy tooth structure intact. When you have veneers placed, they are able to address concerns about discoloration, wear and tear, problems with size, and even some alignment issues! As a result, they can produce many exciting changes for your appearance in just a short period of time.
