Why do we need cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry reverses damage to teeth as a result of poor diet, teeth grinding, smoking, and wear-and-tear

Cosmetic dentistry reverses damage done to your teeth over the years. We're live longer than ever before which makes it tougher to maintain a healthy and beautiful teeth throughout the years. Here are some reasons why our teeth change their appearance over time:

Poor diet

Eating foods and drinks like coffee, tea, wine, berries, and food additives causes our teeth to turn yellow. Consuming acidic foods like lime, lemon, and carbonated sodas causes our tooth enamel to wear thin and makes them look dull. Chewing hard objects like ice, nails, and nuts causes our teeth to chip and crack. These damage add up and make our smile look less attractive over the years.

Teeth grinding

Unfortunately, teeth grinding is a very common habit. Many of us grind our teeth at night times. Others clench their teeth throughout the day. Teeth grinding exerts a ton of unwanted forces unto our teeth which harms our teeth.


Tobacco use has a huge impact on our teeth and gums. Not only does smoking cause our teeth to turn yellow, but it leads to gum disease and bone loss. Many long term smokers end up with a yellow smile, in addition to gum disease and bad teeth.

Certain medical conditions

There are plenty of medical issues which adversely affect our oral health. Many digestive problems, systemic diseases, and other medical conditions can indirectly damage our teeth. Additionally, a long list of medications cause dry mouth. These medications cause reduced saliva flow which further impacts our oral health.


The average person chews 250,000 times a year. This is a lot of chewing which places lots of pressure onto our teeth. This can cause our teeth to crack and break. Those of you with a heavy bite or orthodontic issues place even more forces on your teeth which can be more destructive to your teeth.

Missing teeth

Missing one or more teeth places additional forces on your remaining teeth. The more teeth you are missing, the more forces you are placing onto your remaining teeth. For example, missing just 3 back teeth could nearly double the stress placed on your remaining teeth! This is very harmful to your teeth and causes lots of additional problems down the line.

Our diet and lifestyle choices can cause our teeth to crack, stain, and become damaged over time. As a result, our smile starts to look worn out, yellow, and less attractive. Many of us find ourselves smiling less, taking less photos, and avoiding others just so we don't show our smiles! Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry can help fix all of these problems. Dr. Jazayeri is an experienced cosmetic dentist and he can bring back the smile which you've been missing.
