Are There Dental Treatments for Worn Teeth?

TeethSome people assume that it is not possible to restore the natural wear and tear of teeth. In reality, there are many methods for helping to restore teeth. By meeting with us, you will learn all about the many different options available to improve the condition and aesthetic of your teeth.

Here is a look at some of the ways dentists beautify such teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

We can apply dental veneers to damaged teeth to improve the smile aesthetic. For the most part, we use dental veneers on the front teeth since they are the most visible when smiling. These veneers conceal stains and other imperfections to create a smile worth showing off at every opportunity.

Dental Crowns

We can cover natural teeth that wear down with dental crowns. Have the dentist add dental crowns to your teeth and you will enjoy benefits beyond a beautiful smile. Dental crowns are especially helpful for teeth since they can repair already-damaged portions and also prevent additional damage in the future.

Dental crowns also strengthen teeth and mitigate tooth loss. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by trying dental crowns for your damaged teeth.

Dental Bonding

Teeth that are chipped or cracked can be corrected with tooth bonding. This procedure realigns the bite through a reshaping of the tooth's surface. A resin material matching the color of the teeth is applied with the use of adhesives and a specialized curing light. After applying the dental bonding material, the teeth will look and feel like normal pearly whites.

Dental Fillings

Most people assume dental fillings are only necessary for teeth plagued by decay. Dental fillings are certainly helpful for thwarting tooth decay yet they also play another important role. Dental fillings remedy those aged and leaky fillings caused by gradual wear over the years.

The Battle Against Bruxism

Bruxism will gradually wear away at teeth until they become quite painful, ugly and small in size. The key to preventing such damage is to thwart bruxism before it can wreak havoc on your mouth. The use of a mouthguard while sleeping will help mitigate the damage. Ideally, this mouthguard will be custom-made by the dentist to suit your mouth's idiosyncratic dimensions.

Do not delay the treatment of your bruxism. If you let the bruxism continue, it will impact more than just your teeth. Bruxism can also harm gum tissue through inflammation. If the inflammation is bad enough, it might even lead to gum recession.

Bite Correction

A dentist can correct your misaligned bite with surprising ease. Once your bite is in proper alignment, you will no longer grind your teeth as frequently or forcefully. Bite correction is possible with or without surgery/braces. Options for bite correction include a reverse pull facemask to an upper jaw expander, reshaping through cosmetic dentistry, jaw surgery and braces. Meet with your dentist to determine which approach is optimal for your mouth.
