Cosmetic Dentistry - Not Just for Esthetics!
When searching for a cosmetic dentist in Castle Rock, you might have mixed feelings because it feels like vanity to want your smile to look brilliant. This couldn’t be farther from the truth, however; a beautiful smile is an asset in everyday life and can even improve your oral health.
Fixing Sensitive Teeth
Broken down or worn teeth can feel sensitive, especially if the softer dentin layer is exposed to chewing and temperature changes. Dentin is darker than enamel, and if you have worn teeth, you might see the layers of the tooth when examining their edges.
The painful zing of cold air or even biting into something – like a sandwich or a bagel – might feel painful or cause discomfort. Cosmetic dentistry can make these uncomfortable moments disappear. Dental crowns and veneers restore the shape, length, and color of teeth by covering your existing tooth structure. This places a barrier between your dentin, nerve, and the outside world.
Restoring the Bite
If you have a history of teeth grinding or have broken teeth caused by an accident, you might find that your teeth no longer come together correctly. An incorrect bite makes it more difficult for you jaw to sit comfortably in its joint. Because your jaw is working overtime, your facial muscles can feel overworked and become inflamed, causing headaches and migraines.
Placing dental crowns on back teeth and veneers on front teeth opens the bite and improves jaw function. Not to mention, our tooth-colored restorations look fantastic and completely natural.
To prevent damage to your dentistry, we will recommend a nightguard to combat the forces of teeth grinding.
You Are More Likely to Care for Your Teeth and Gums
Having a sense of pride in your smile will give you a reason to never miss your morning or evening brushing and flossing routine. You are also more likely to keep your regular dental appointments where we will monitor your oral health.
