A New Decade for Cosmetic Dentistry
It’s a new decade and that means it’s time to take control of your oral health. If the last ten years have been less than kind to your teeth and gums, cosmetic dentistry may be the answer. Best of all, cosmetic dentistry is much more affordable than it used to be.
Most people are good candidates for cosmetic dentistry. However, before anything can take place you will need to schedule a thorough dental examination with Chittenden Dental in Burlington.
Cosmetic Dentistry for Healthy Teeth and Gums
Cosmetic dentistry is much more than aesthetic. Teeth that are chipped or cracked are more difficult to brush and floss. This makes it easy for bacteria and acid to eat away at the enamel on your teeth. If you aren’t able to floss properly, you are also opening yourself up to gum disease, which is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
Chipped, cracked, and missing teeth also make your other teeth do things they wouldn’t normally do. For example, if you have a missing tooth, the tooth directly above it will do its best to move into the gap caused by the lost tooth. Abutment teeth can also drift and move if you have missing teeth.
