You should absolutely, never ignore any type of smile damage that affects you! However, you may assume that a little bit of damage is either something that you should just learn to live with (and pretend isn’t there) or that we won’t necessarily be able to help you with. In actuality, however, all damage is worth bringing to our attention and something that we can help you address, so you have your beautiful, healthy smile back! Consider just a few reasons you should keep all of this in mind and come in when your smile isn’t in its best condition.
#1: Damaged Teeth Usually Become Even More Damaged
When smile damage affects your teeth in a serious way, there’s one thing patients often overlook as they try to just accept what’s happened: What begins as one level of damage generally becomes greater damage. Remember that a structurally sound tooth is capable of withstanding quite a lot. However, once that structure becomes compromised in any way, your tooth becomes much more likely to further crack or break. Fortunately, we can help you with damaged teeth by offering restorative care, such as dental crowns, so your smile is pretty and functional again!
#2: Damage Often Paves The Way For Infection
Another thing you might be forgetting? Smile damage often means that your teeth are broken and, as a result, that their interior tissue is easily reachable by bacteria. Whether your damage is a cavity, a crack, or a break, bacteria will use such openings to infect your tooth. You don’t want this to happen or to get out of hand. So, remember to visit us for help, whether you need a root canal for an existing infection, a filling to address a cavity, or anything else to get your teeth in good shape and to keep them safe.
#3: It Can Look Not-So-Lovely
Don’t forget, damage comes in the form of esthetic damage, too, which won’t leave your smile looking so lovely! Instead, any damage that occurs is damage that’s going to stay! If you’re okay with it, of course, then you are not required to address strictly esthetic damage for the sake of your oral health (because it won’t impact your smile’s health). However, if you don’t like having chips, stained teeth, or other types of cosmetic-related damage, then come in to see our team! We offer the cosmetic treatments that you need, such as bonding, contouring, whitening, and veneers, to enjoy a truly beautiful-looking grin!
