It is hard to truly give your teeth a break from biting and chewing – after all, our bodies require food multiple times in a typical day. You may not think about the effects of friction from biting and chewing at a particular meal. However, you may come to realize just how much friction can affect your smile if you notice a change in your appearance because of gradual wear and tear. At our Rochester, MN dental practice, we have experience helping people restore teeth that have become worn over time. In addition to helping you look younger, a cosmetic dental procedure that addresses this problem can also help with the color of your teeth, and make your smile more symmetrical.
Friction From Biting And Chewing Can Gradually Change The Shape Of Teeth
While it is an incredibly strong substance, enamel can gradually show the effects of wear and tear through the years. For some people, changes can be more significant, and more striking. You can wind up with more effects from wear and tear because of a teeth grinding habit, or because of a habit of chewing on hard surfaces. People sometimes show more visible wear and tear simply because they have naturally softer enamel, or because acidic and sugary foods have weakened their teeth over time.
Discussing Your Options For Cosmetic Dental Work
There are several treatment options available to a person who is worried about the shape or condition of their teeth. Porcelain veneers are effective at making teeth appear considerably younger and healthier. With these restorations affixed to the fronts of teeth, you can make your them brighter and more uniform, while also ensuring your teeth are the ideal shape and size for your optimal smile. We also provide work in the form of dental bonding treatment. Bonding treatments can lead to results without permanent restorations. In this approach, we can restore the shape, color, and size of any problem teeth by applying composite resin to them.
What If My Tooth Needs More Than Just A Cosmetic Restoration?
In some cases, people who have experienced dental wear and tear can start to have difficulty biting and chewing with certain teeth. In this situation, dental crowns can be beneficial. We use modern technology to craft lifelike dental crowns on site in order to make this restorative work more convenient. When planning treatment of teeth with dental crowns, we can have your smile restored in as little as one appointment!
