Should I Worry That My Teeth Show Signs Of Wear And Tear?
Posted February 2, 2018 by Wager-Evans Dental
Our teeth possess a remarkable degree of durability, but as the years pass, signs of wear and tear can accumulate. These signs can develop at a different pace for different people. In some cases, this is because one person’s teeth might not be as naturally strong, but a buildup of damage can also occur if your tend to grind your teeth, or chew hard surfaces. Wear and tear may not affect the health of your teeth, but it can potentially make them appear less healthy, or make you look older. If you are bothered by the appearance your teeth are taking on, talk to your dentist about cosmetic dental work.
If you are worried that your teeth are beginning to make you appear older, or that they simply do not look as attractive as they used to, you may want to learn how cosmetic work can help. Patients who want to address issues with the condition of their teeth can have porcelain veneers placed, to cover up signs of wear and tear. Veneers are able to make impressive changes by covering up flaws like damage, discoloration, and even some congenital abnormalities.
On teeth with more significant damage, restorative dental work can be preferable. In certain cases, your dentist may recommend having a dental crown placed. This can make it easier for you to bite and chew with that tooth, and it can prevent the accumulation of more harm.
