Dental wear and tear causes many people embarrassment. Your teeth may not be worn down to the point where you need restorative dental work, but you can still worry that misshapen teeth are hurting your smile. At our Riverside, CA dentist’s office, we can discuss your options for treatment if you want to positively change the way you look. Through cosmetic dentistry, we can make your smile more uniform by hiding wear and tear and other flaws. If you have issues with worn enamel because of a history of nightly teeth grinding, we can discuss bruxism treatment with a custom oral appliance.

Why Do My Teeth Look So Worn Down?

Nightly teeth grinding, or bruxism, often leads to problems with visible wear and tear. Simply put, the friction you create each night will gradually grind down your enamel, which can leave you with teeth that appear flattened or generally misshapen. Another problem that can lead to teeth looking in poor condition is naturally weaker enamel, which can be more vulnerable to friction.

Reviewing The Cosmetic Services Available To You

We can target wear and tear by performing tooth bonding and contouring services. With these services, we will reshape teeth and hide any chipping or cracking caused by wear and tear with a composite resin substance. This approach does not require any restorations, so it can often be completed in less time. Through treatment with porcelain veneers, we can cover up wear and tear, make damaged teeth look healthy, and even hide gaps and overlaps that are present. Veneers cover the fronts of teeth. Unlike dental crowns, which completely envelop teeth, veneers only require minor modifications to be placed.

Avoid Further Troubles With Wear And Tear By Addressing Bruxism

Through oral appliance therapy, we can take care of nightly teeth grinding troubles. When you wear the custom appliance given to you by your dentist, it will separate your upper and lower teeth so that they cannot connect and grind against each other. This can also help ease tension on your jaw joints and muscles, which can lead to a reduction in issues connected to TMJ disorder.
