Your Smile: Let’s Talk About Wear And Tear

You hear this phrase in many different facets of your life. You know that your home’s floors, even if you care for them, may become a bit yucky over time simply due to wear a tear. A car may go for hundreds of thousands of miles but still, due to wear and tear, it will not seem brand new and pristine forever! As for your smile, when it’s A-OK but could be in better shape, you may hear this phrase applied: You’ve been doing a good job with dental care but your grin has seen a bit of wear and tear! What’s this all mean and what should you do about it? Our Lake Orion, MI team would like to help!

About Wear And Tear

So, what does it mean when wear and tear impacts your smile? In short, it means that even if you provide your smile with optimal dental care both at home and at our practice, your teeth are still being used every day. Like anything else, they may deal with a little bit of esthetic damage. Maybe they get a bit scuffed up and you end up with a chip or two. Maybe you deal with a bit of minor discoloration, since teeth are porous! It’s normal and is to be expected. Fortunately, we can help you with it!

Your Cosmetic Care Solutions

As mentioned, over time, as wear and tear has an impact on your smile, you may end up with some amount of chipping, discoloration, or otherwise. However, you don’t have to feel guilty about this (because you’ve been taking good care of your smile!) or worried (because we provide cosmetic dental care to fix up little concerns). Remember that you may access teeth whitening or other treatments, should you wish to say goodbye to yellowing or dimming and welcome back a very white smile. Or, you may wish to consider bonding for chips. Then again, veneers can address both of these issues and more! It’s all about figuring out what’s right for you.
