As time passes, the friction biting and chewing actions place on our teeth can affect their condition. This resulting wear and tear can also impact past restorative dental work a person has undergone. If you have an older dental filling, or dental crown, they may need to be replaced soon. If you are experiencing discomfort, or find it harder to count on a restored tooth in biting and chewing, a replacement can be important. After all, the purpose of your restoration is to make sure an affected tooth is fully supported, and that it is stable enough to contribute to basic dental functions. Thanks to advancements in treatment, you can receive a replacement filling or crown that is remarkably life-like.
Natural Wear And Tear Will Affect Crowns And Fillings
Over time, a restoration can be worn down by basic dental functions. Of course, that wear and tear can occur more quickly if you have a habit of chewing on hard substances, or if you allow a teeth grinding habit to go unaddressed.
