Bioesthetics Before Cosmetic Dentistry

If you have been told by your cosmetic dentistry dentist that you are, “Exceptionally hard,” on your dental restorations it may have something to do with your bite or TMJ.

Unfortunately not all dentists will examine your entire chewing system. This means it is quite likely that your restorations won’t last as long as they are meant to. If this is the case it may be time to see a bioesthetic dentist for cosmetic dentistry.

Cosmetic Dentistry and Bad Bites Don’t Mix

If you have any type of bite disorder your porcelain veneers will have a hard time. In other words because you may be clenching and grinding they will have a hard time sticking around, no pun intended.

Dr. Mike Morris is a bioesthetic dentist who understands how the chewing system works. So much so that he has invented a dental orthotic that helps the chewing system including the temporomandibular joints.

This dental orthotic is an amazing oral appliance that gently moves your jaw and chewing system into the desired position.

Your dentist is with you every step up with way if it is determined you require an orthotic device before cosmetic dentistry. Having a third party make or even adjust your custom made device isn’t very contusive, in fact it could hamper your treatment. Everything is done in house with this bioesthetic dentist.

Of course if your bite and temporomandibular joints are in good shape it could be that your restorations are old and need replacing. While your veneers and crowns may have given you years of use they will not last forever.

As a bioesthetic dentist Dr. Morris will make sure that your restorations have normal wear and haven’t worn down because of other issues such as a bad bite.

While you may think your bite is on point only a dentist can tell for sure. Because Chittenden Dental examines your entire chewing system including your TMJ you know that whatever is required will be ready for restoration or replacement.

Ready for Your New Smile

When you are truly ready for cosmetic dentistry your chewing system and jaw joints will be healthy.

The more grinding and biting that goes on the less chance you have of long lasting dental restorations. Only Dr. Morris can tell if you have something going on with your bite or jaw joints.
