Dental rehabilitation is a solution that makes it possible to regain a smile with an optimal aesthetic and functional balance. It gives the face a more youthful and natural appearance. Get a free consultation with Mon Smile today.
When teeth shorten with wear, the soft tissues (cheeks, lips) that are supported by the teeth collapse and make the face appear older (more pronounced wrinkles). Dental wear and malposition can also play a role in the seating of the jaw and create noises, blockages or pain in the joint. Premature dental aging and / or an unsightly smile are caused by various factors:
See below the types of treatments that are possible to do within a complete dental rehabilitation plan.
A dental veneer is a treatment that corrects the appearance of a tooth by partially covering it. Made of ceramic, porcelain or composite, it is possible to change the shape and color of one or more of your teeth.
When properly adapted, the shape of dental veneers can have a big impact on your smile. They look and feel like real teeth.
Several factors are taken into account when consulting with your dentist for the placement of dental veneers. Color, shape, thickness, translucency, occlusion and other characteristics are analyzed to provide you with a smile suited to your body type.
Unlike the dental veneer which covers the visible part of the tooth, the dental crown encompasses all surfaces of the tooth. It can be used to:
Strengthen a tooth that has already undergone a root canal treatment or has a large filing.
Protect a broken or heavily worn tooth
Cover a dental malformation (enamel hypoplasia, hypocalcification)
Correct the shape and stabilize misaligned teeth
To serve a pillar for a bridge
To cover an implant
Replacing a tooth
The implant is the ideal replacement solution for one or more teeth. This is an artificial root that can replace the roots of missing teeth. This is the closest treatment to a natural tooth. It helps, among other things, restore chewing strength, prevent the movement of neighboring teeth and preserve bone.
Factors causing loss of aesthetics in your teeth
Complete dental rehabilitation helps correct all of the factors below. You will therefore have, in addition to an aesthetic smile, a functional smile in complete comfort.
Bruxism: Bruxism is when you repeatedly grind your teeth when you are asleep (unconscious) or in a stressful situation. This aggressive phenomenon of repeated friction induces wear of the teeth which is irreversible. Sometimes bruxism is related to over-stimulation of the brain system (Parkinson’s, hyperactivity, brain trauma, cerebral palsy and others.
Erosion: Dental erosion is the result of a chemical process that causes enamel to dissolve. In more severe cases, dentin and cement can also be dissolved. This type of lesion is not attributable to bacterial action and usually affects several teeth. The origin is attributable to the excessive consumption of carbonated drinks / energy drinks / citrus juices / acidic foods, chronic or repetitive vomiting and certain acidic industrial vapors, etc.
Abrasion: Abrasion is the result of friction between the teeth and a foreign object. Abrasion usually occurs through oral habits such as using toothpicks, biting nails, holding a tool between your teeth, playing a wind musical instrument, wearing a partial denture with hooks, etc. But the main reason often comes from too abrasive toothpaste (whitening toothpaste and anti-tartar) which contains glass particles thus sanding the teeth gradually.
Abfraction: Abfraction is the bursting of enamel at the edge of the gum line. It looks like the shape left by a lumberjack when he nicks a tree with an ax. Abfraction occurs when the load on the teeth is too great. They then burst at the flexion zone (like a tree branch being bent). Bruxism and clenching significantly amplify the development of these lesions. In such a case, it is recommended to use an occlusal plate to limit the effects of the tightening. However, you have to be aware that this plaque is not a treatment, but a tool that allows us to temporarily reduce the progression.
Attrition: The chewing girth that your teeth travel when you chew can cause premature wear and tear on the teeth that butt together. Anterior teeth are more fragile and are not made for chewing. If overused, they can fracture, crack, and wear out quickly. Posterior teeth may also show signs of attrition if you grind your teeth a lot.
Alignment of your teeth: the overlapping of the teeth (crooked teeth) promotes uneven wear of the teeth. Malpositions can also make a smile visually less harmonious in addition to increasing the difficulty of daily dental care.
Missing Teeth: When several teeth are missing, the remaining teeth migrate in different directions to find a stable position. These movements cause an imbalance in the support of the jaw. This imbalance can induce chewing pain, premature wear, dental fractures, less effective chewing and digestive disorders (gastric reflux, constipation, etc.).
