Why Am I Starting To See Signs Of Dental Wear And Tear?

While it can sometimes be hard to notice, your dental wear and tear can reach the point of impacting your smile. For older patients, an accumulation of wear and tear could simply be from years of friction during biting and chewing. However, it could be possible that your damage is the result of a teeth grinding habit, or because of a tendency to chew on hard surfaces. If you think your wear and tear is starting to impact the way you look, you can talk to your Rochester, MN dentist about addressing the problem with the appropriate cosmetic dental work. If you are concerned that a tooth is affected by more than just superficial damage, a dental crown could be required.

Should I Consider Cosmetic Work To Address Wear And Tear?

If you feel that your smile is negatively impacted by wear and tear accumulated on your teeth, cosmetic dental work can help. The right procedure can make your smile appear younger and healthier by covering up issues that impact the shape, size, or even color of your teeth. Placing porcelain veneers over teeth can hide the changes caused by wear and tear, and make your smile seem younger, more symmetrical, and in better shape overall.

The Difference Between Natural Wear And Tear, And Dental Damage

While some natural wear and tear can be unavoidable, simply because your teeth experience friction when you bite and chew, damage to a tooth should be a concern. If there is too much damage, it may take the appropriate restorative dental work to return your tooth to a condition where you can comfortably bite and chew. To offer lasting support, your dentist can use a dental crown. An attractive, durable crown can be ready for you in one appointment thanks to advanced technology available at your dentist’s office.
