Will Cosmetic Work Affect Your Dental Function?

Arranging cosmetic dental work can have clear benefits for your smile, but could it also affect your dental function? At our Rochester, MN dental practice, we can provide meaningful changes to your appearance without creating issues for your ability to bite and chew food. Having porcelain veneers placed on teeth, or undergoing cosmetic bonding treatment, should not have an impact on your daily life beyond improving the way you look. If you have a current problem with your ability to bite and chew, it is possible to make cosmetic and functional improvements with a lifelike dental crown. Thanks to CEREC technology, we can actually produce and place a custom restoration for you in just a single appointment!

Cosmetic Work Can Improve Your Smile Without Intruding On Your Biting And Chewing

Cosmetic procedures performed at our practice are meant to offer lasting improvements. While they are impressively slim, porcelain veneers are strong enough to maintain their shape and look even as they continue to absorb biting and chewing pressures. A bonding procedure uses composite resin, a material strong enough to serve as tooth-colored dental fillings. You will not have to worry that a restored tooth is not strong enough to absorb biting or chewing pressure, so you can continue to enjoy a natural dental function. With that said, your cosmetic work can last longer when you practice smart oral health habits, just as your natural teeth can maintain their appearance over time when you provide better care for them.

Planning A Cosmetic Procedure

If you are not sure of what procedure you should schedule with your dentist, you can set up a free cosmetic consultation. During this visit, you can learn more about your treatment options, and talk about the improvements you are hoping to make. With your goals made clear, your dentist can talk to you about the most direct path to making all of your desired changes. This work can take less time than you might expect, even if you want to correct multiple problems with the way you look.

Using Dental Crowns To Improve Your Smile

What can a person do if they want to address concerns about their dental function while also improving the way they look? We can restore teeth that are damaged, undersized, or otherwise flawed in a way that makes biting and chewing difficult by providing you with dental crowns. We have technology at our practice to craft custom-sized, lifelike dental crowns that can be placed over your teeth in one appointment. With these restorations in place, you can feel better about the way you look while also feeling more confident in your natural dental function.
