Improving Smiles Hurt By Enamel Damage

Our teeth are protected by outer layers of enamel that are strong enough to stay in good condition for many years. Unfortunately, in addition to being vulnerable to cavities, the material can be physically harmed. When this happens, you can find yourself embarrassed by enamel chips, cracks, or even discoloration! Our Santa Monica, CA dentist’s office is prepared to help when physical trauma causes distress over your appearance. We actually provide different options for cosmetic treatment, as we can use both Lumineers and traditional porcelain veneers to help you. When needed, we can also provide dental crowns, which cover teeth to provide bite support and the preservation of your health along with cosmetic benefits.

Different Forms Of Enamel Damage That Can Hurt Your Appearance

Enamel damage can happen after an unfortunate accident, or it can be a culmination of wear and tear that gradually changes the shape and appearance of your tooth. No matter its cause, this problem can become a source of serious embarrassment. It can make your smile look asymmetrical, and it can draw negative attention to a specific flaw and take away from the overall quality of your smile. The good news is that there are different services that respond to this problem. Whether you simply need to address embarrassment over your appearance or need to address potential oral health problems, we can help you see the right results.

Using Porcelain Veneers And Lumineers To Hide Flaws

With both porcelain veneers and Lumineers, we can hide many embarrassing cosmetic flaws. Both are thin, porcelain-made shells that cover the fronts of teeth. What separates them is that Lumineers are thinner, which can make preparatory work easier. Whichever you choose, you can see results after just two appointments! In addition to hiding problems with the shapes and conditions of flawed teeth, these restorations can make improvements to the color of teeth to change your appearance for the better.

We Can Determine If A Tooth Needs A Crown

A dental crown may be needed if you have a problem with a tooth that is badly hurt. In addition to taking care of problems with dental decay, crowns can help with physical issues that negatively change your health and appearance.
