Advanced Wear And Tear Can Hurt Your Smile

While tooth enamel is an impressively hard and durable material, it is not completely invulnerable. A degree of dental wear and tear is difficult to avoid over time, but for some people it can become so prominent that it affects the way that they look. Visible chips or cracks, or general changes in the shapes of teeth, may hurt your confidence in your smile and make you worry about your oral health. If you have concerns about wear and tear, bring them to your Rochester, MN dentist’s office! At your visit, your dentist will closely examine your teeth to determine what kind of care might be beneficial. Because we offer complimentary cosmetic consultations, you have the opportunity to schedule a free visit to learn about the services that can positively change the way you look and give you more confidence in your appearance.

Why Do Some People Experience Issues With Visible Wear And Tear?

Simply put, some people have naturally weaker enamel, which makes them more likely to show signs of wear and tear as they age. Others are more likely to have problems because of issues with their dental health over time. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits can help you protect your teeth against harm from oral bacteria, and limiting your consumption of acidic foods and drinks can help you protect your enamel from gradually weakening. This can lower your risk of enamel becoming weaker and more susceptible to trouble. Gradual wear and tear can occur at an early age, and become more prominent, if you grind your teeth.

Arranging Cosmetic Treatment To Address Your Smile Concerns

There are several cosmetic and general procedures that are able to restore a person’s smile. At a consultation, we can examine your teeth and see what approach to care we recommend for you. Porcelain veneers are custom shells capped to the fronts of teeth. After they are fixed in place, they will cover trouble with wear and tear, discoloration, concerns about spacing, and even naturally occurring problems with tooth shape and size. If you want to restore a few teeth that stand out for their worn-down appearance, we can discuss tooth bonding treatment. Instead of putting a restoration on the tooth, we will use a composite resin material to cover flaws and restore its appearance. This approach can take as little as one appointment, making it effective for those who want results in a shorter time!

Keep Up With Your Smile’s Condition At Regular Dental Exams

Stay informed about the quality and condition of your smile by scheduling regular dental exams. Every exam is an opportunity to learn about problems before they worsen, as well as a chance to discuss your worries about wear and tear, or any other issue robbing you of confidence in the way you look.
