Worn teeth

Some people are harder on their teeth than others and this may be due to the fact that they grind their teeth subconsciously, usually while asleep, but sometimes even in waking hours without realising it. In some cases with people who are taking SSRIs, a side effect of the medication may be increased tooth clenching and/or grinding. Whatever the reason for teeth grinding the result is the same; stumpy blunt teeth that have lost a great deal of length. Happily though, there is an elegant solution to repair worn and chipped teeth Glasgow that does not involve removing the worn teeth.

Porcelain veneers are a full set of porcelain slivers that can be used to reconstruct worn teeth in order to bring them back to their original fullness. A veneer is a thin slice of tooth-shaped porcelain that is bonded to the tooth in order to restore it either cosmetically or in this case to restore functionality. Veneers can be applied in a set that covers all the teeth, giving you a new smile that looks as real as any other and your dentist will be able to provide you with a nightguard to wear in order to protect your new teeth from being ground in your sleep.

Chipped teeth

A tooth can become chipped and broken in any number of ways, which is why dentists needed to come up with good solutions to restoring them instead of having to replace them. We can’t give an implant to every chipped tooth that walks into our practice, that is wholly over the top; but we can repair worn and chipped teeth Glasgow, in order to bring your smile back to fullness thus restoring your confidence and this is done through either composite bonding or crowns.

Composite bonding is a procedure where we use a special type of tooth coloured resin that matches your own teeth on the chipped area of the tooth. This resin is built up and sculpted in order to restore the tooth’s shape and it is then hardened with a light and will be hard enough for you to go back to your regular lifestyle.

Crowns are useful in the case of a large break or very big chip. We are able to use a dental crown to restore fullness to the tooth. This crown can be made of precious metals like gold, but more commonly nowadays the crown is either made from tooth-coloured porcelain or a similar resin that is used in composite bonding.
