Why do we need cosmetic dentistry?

Poor diet, teeth grinding, smoking, medical conditions and wear-and-tear damage our teeth over time and cosmetic dentistry can help reverse this damage

Cosmetic dentistry helps you maintain your youthful smile and reverses damage done to our teeth over the years. We’re living longer than ever before, which makes it tougher to maintain a healthy and beautiful teeth throughout our lifetime. Here are some reasons why our teeth change their appearance over time:

Poor diet

Consuming foods and drinks like coffee, tea, wine, berries and many food additives turn our teeth yellow. Acidic food items like lime, lemon and carbonated sodas can wear out our tooth enamel and make them appear dull looking. Chewing hard objects like ice, nails and nuts can put chips and cracks onto our teeth. There are lots of items that affect our teeth and the damage adds up.

Teeth grinding habits

Teeth grinding is very common among the population. Many of us grind our teeth at nights or clench throughout daytime. Grinding exerts a ton of unwanted forces unto our teeth which further harms and damages them.


Tobacco use has a huge impact on the health of our teeth and gums. Not only does smoking cause our teeth to turn yellow but it leads to gum disease and bone loss. Long term smokers damage both the appearance as well as the health of their teeth.

Medical conditions

There are plenty of medical issues which adversely affect our oral health. Digestive problems, systemic diseases and many other medical conditions can indirectly damage our teeth. Additionally, a long list of medications which cause dry mouth further impact our oral health.

Wear and tear

The average person chews 250,000 times a year which is a lot of chewing! Chewing alone places lots of pressure onto our teeth which causes them to crack and damage with time. Those with a strong bite or orthodontic issues place even more forces on their teeth and further damage them.

Accidents happen! Our teeth crack, stain and become damaged because of our diet or lifestyle choices. As a result, our teeth start to look worn out, yellow and less attractive. We find ourselves smiling less, taking less pictures and avoiding others just so they don’t see our smile! Fortunately, cosmetic dentistry can help fix all of these problems.
