Porcelain Veneers with a Bioesthetic Dentist

If porcelain veneers have always been at the back of your mind schedule an appointment with Chittenden Dental.

Porcelain veneers are a specialty, even though the ADA doesn’t think so, and require a steady hand and a trained eye to place.

Because the American Dental Association does not see cosmetic dentistry as a specialty anyone can provide them, even dentists who don’t have the experience to do so.

Bioesthetic Dentistry and Porcelain Veneers

Porcelain veneers are thin sheets of dental porcelain that are placed on the fronts of teeth. Custom made veneers must be placed by a dentist, such as Dr. Mike Morris, who understands the chewing system.

While that may seem odd to some, your chewing system plays a major role when it comes to restoration duration. In other words, if your jaw joints or bite aren’t in proper position your porcelain veneers will pay the price.

Why Your Bite Matters

People who have issues with their bite will most likely clench and grind. Clenching and grinding is very hard on teeth. You can only imagine what chronic grinding will do to porcelain veneers.

That is why it is vital that you have your teeth, gums and chewing system examined before you consider any type of cosmetic dentistry procedure.

Your chewing system includes the nerves, tongue, mouth, lips, bite, muscles, jaw joints, teeth bones and gums.

A Working System

When everything is working together as it should your chewing system is healthy, if your chewing system isn’t working properly you may experience some or all of the following:

  • Problems chewing
  • Jaw pain when you talk or chew
  • Popping sound when you open and close
  • Clicking in your jaw when you eat
  • Recent changes to bite
  • Grinding or clenching teeth
  • Facial pain
  • Neck pain
  • Worn down teeth
  • Chipped, cracked and broken teeth
  • Ear pain
  • Tension headaches
  • Ear Pain

Bioesthetic Dentistry Before Porcelain Veneers

Determining what is causing the tooth wear in the first place is how bioesthetic dentistry works. Bioesthetic dentistry Burlington treats the entire system, not just one tooth at a time.

If you haven’t had your chewing system looked at it could be the reason you are constantly sitting in the dentist’s chair.

Regular dentistry treats the symptoms and doesn’t look at the entire chewing system which is vital if you are having dental restorations.

Before you consider porcelain veneers have a chat with Chittenden Dental. Dr. Morris will be able to determine if you are a good fit for cosmetic dentistry or if your chewing system needs to be repaired first.
