Most times, there are several approaches for restoring worn-down teeth.  These can range from porcelain veneers and crowns to bite correction methods too.  These can lead to less pain, discomfort, and less future dental problems as well as a healthier and more confident smile.

Before Treatment


Porcelain Veneers And Bite Alignment

 

It is very important to discern what caused the worn-down teeth before beginning any treatment.  Tooth wear can be caused by a number of things:

1) Erosion, chemical or acid dissolution

2) Grinding and or airway issues

3) Accidents

4) Misaligned Bite and or TMJ dysfunction

The reason it is so important to find out what caused the worn down teeth is to ensure the restored teeth are not subject to the same problem as the natural teeth were.  This will ensure the longevity of your new smile.

In the case above, grinding due to a misalgined bite caused the damage that you can see.  Before porcelain veneers were completed, bite alignment was corrected and the teeth restored.  It is easy to see the difference this makes in this gentleman’s appearance and smile!
