Taking care of your smile is a lifelong process that involves many moving parts. After all, there are countless threats out there that can compromise your grin’s integrity, so taking care to practice a well-rounded preventive routine is a must. Even still, some concerns can impact your smile in more ways than functionally and health-wise, and it is important to seek necessary treatment sooner rather than later. In today’s blog, your Vista, CA dentist takes a look at the way cosmetic dental concerns can impact your smile, and how porcelain veneers can help.
When we think of dental damage, the first thing that often comes to mind is dangerous decay and infection. Indeed, dental decay is among the most common oral health threats in the world, and it affects millions of people every year. To best combat it, our team recommends a well-rounded preventive dental routine to fend off hyperactive oral bacteria.
Still, some patients may take excellent care of their grins to ensure a lifelong grin, but accidents can happen at any time and can range in severity. Unfortunately, these situations are mostly out of our control, and the only thing we can do is determine how we will handle it.
In some cases, physical injury and accident may result in the need for immediate medical attention from providers in an emergency room. For other cases, the issues can be handled in-office with an emergency dental visit. Another possibility is that the damage endured is only surface-level in nature, thus not influencing your health or oral function. Keep in mind, however, that while your function and health may be alright, treatment should still be sought. For more information about this process, reach out to our team today.
Addressing Multiple Blemishes
When dealing with surface-level concerns, your dentist will likely recommend the help of cosmetic dentistry. Indeed, cosmetic procedures such as porcelain veneers are used to address blemishes and other discrepancies that plague your smile with a non-invasive approach.
Porcelain veneers consist of ultra-thin shells of dental porcelain that are placed over the front of your teeth. What’s more? They require minimal enamel sculpting to place, rendering them virtually non-invasive. To learn more about this process, reach out to our team today.
Enjoying Your Grin
A major benefit that accompanies cosmetic veneer treatment involves the ability to address a variety of discrepancies with one simple treatment. Indeed, whether your smile is riddled with chips, cracks, difficult stains, gaps in-between teeth, or some combination, veneers offer a permanent solution with a near-seamless finish.
