Over time, nightly teeth grinding and clenching can make serious trouble for your smile. The friction from bruxism can lead to serious concerns about your appearance, as enamel wear and tear can have a visible effect on the way you look. MMC Dental can help you deal with bruxism by providing a custom appliance to wear while you sleep. Protecting your teeth while you rest can prevent further issues with grinding and clenching. Our practice can also help people who feel self-conscious about their appearance because of issues with bruxism. Through the right cosmetic service, we can give you back your confidence in your smile! We can also take care of enamel damage that might call for restorative treatment.
A Teeth Grinding Habit Can Have Real Consequences For Your Smile
While our teeth are protected by a strong outer layer of enamel, nightly jaw grinding and clenching can wear down your teeth. This can lead to unwelcome changes in the way you look. When worn down, your teeth can look older and less healthy. This problem can also lead to changes in your smile symmetry. After we address active bruxism concerns with a custom oral appliance, we can discuss dental services that restore your appearance.
Protect Yourself Against Nighttime Grinding And Clenching
By wearing a custom oral appliance at night, you can stop grinding and clenching from doing further harm to your enamel. The appliance we provide can stay secure and keep your teeth apart as you rest. This form of protection can stop problems with bruxism from worsening. Custom guards can help with more than just this issue. We can also provide a guard that helps you with unresolved jaw pains. Your appliance can hold your jaw in a position that eases tension and helps improve your bite.
Restore Your Appearance Through Treatment With Your Dentist
Restoring your smile through cosmetic dental work can lead to lasting benefits. With tooth bonding or porcelain veneers, you can make your smile more symmetrical by addressing wear and tear. These treatments also help brighten teeth, hide damage, and even change the shape and size of teeth that look out of place. Before proceeding with any treatment, we can check on your condition to determine if you require restorative dental work instead of cosmetic care.
