If you have a habit of grinding your teeth, or if you have softer enamel, you can experience unwelcome cosmetic changes as your teeth start to show signs of wear and tear. Dental wear and tear can age you, make you look less healthy, and it can ultimately rob you of the smile you have grown accustomed to seeing in the mirror. The good news is that your Riverside, CA dentist can recommend a cosmetic dental procedure to change your smile for the better. We can provide positive results with porcelain veneers or tooth bonding and contouring treatment, both of which can change the shape, size, and color of your smile.

Are You Unhappy Because Your Smile Looks Worn Or Misshapen?

Dental wear and tear can make you self-conscious as you notice that your smile is no longer as symmetrical as it used to be, or because teeth look visibly damaged. The more that you accumulate wear and tear, the more you can feel that you look older and less healthy. This problem can be especially difficult to avoid if you are not dealing with a habit of grinding and clenching your teeth. In addition to providing protection for your smile by offering protection against nightly grinding, your dentist can advise you on the benefits of cosmetic dental work.

Dealing With Superficial Dental Damage

With porcelain veneers, we can cover up wear and tear, make teeth look brighter, and even address problems with poor symmetry by making your smile more uniform. Veneers are thin shells that cover the front surfaces of teeth in order to change their appearance. This is a conservative procedure that can still make exciting improvements in as little as two appointments. A tooth bonding and contouring treatment can also help you deal with the visible effects of wear and tear. This is a targeted approach that can carefully reshape and resize teeth while hiding any chips and cracks that are present.

Restoring Teeth That Need More Than Just Cosmetic Support

If necessary, we can provide a dental crown to keep a tooth safe and secure if wear and tear has affected your oral health. A crown can provide better bite support, and it can prevent problems from further wear and tear. We can also discuss treatment to protect you against bruxism to stop nightly grinding from doing any more harm to your teeth.
