Bioesthetic and Cosmetic Dentistry Go Together

Your smile speaks volumes and if yours isn’t what it used to be call Chittenden Dental for cosmetic dentistry.

This bioesthetic dental practice in Burlington has what it takes to give you a smile that will speak much more than volumes.

Restorative and cosmetic dentistry go hand in hand with bioesthetic dentistry as they all involve the chewing system.

Your Chewing System

If you follow the Chittenden Dental blog, you will remember that the chewing system is the foundation for your teeth and gums.

Because your chewing system contains muscles, tendons, joints and nerves, along with teeth and gums, it must be working properly. If anything isn’t doing what it is supposed to do it will affect your teeth and gums and your dental restorations.

Cosmetic Dentistry that Does it All

Dr. Mike Morris is a bioesthetic dentist who believes in checking everything out before proceeding. In other words your chewing system is examined before placing veneers or cosmetic dental crowns.

This is important because the way your teeth come together has an effect on your dental restorations.

For instance, if you have porcelain veneers and grind teeth because of your cross bite they will not last as long as they should. Furthermore, you are damaging your natural teeth.

Healthy teeth are naturally strong, but add chronic grinding or bruxism to the mix and they won’t be for long.

According to Chittenden Dental constant grinding eventually wears down teeth. So much so that they will become nearly uniform.

Your Bite and your Teeth

If Dr. Morris discovers a problem with your bite or temporomandibular joints he will come up with a plan. A plan using oral appliance therapy for joint and bite issues.

Dr. Morris has several types of orthotics he and his team use and will find the best custom made solution for your bite or jaw joint problem.

A New Smile with Cosmetic Dentistry

Once your smile has been repaired you and Dr. Morris will talk about what types of cosmetic dentistry restorations you would like for your smile.

Because your bite and/or joint problems have been fixed, you can consider veneers, cosmetic dental crowns and other types of cosmetic dentistry procedures.
