Types Of Damage (And Why You Should Address Them)!

Our Southlake, TX team knows that when you find yourself dealing with any type of smile damage, it can really rattle you! As a result, what you want is to forget all about it, pretend everything is just fine, and get on with your day. You may hope that when you keep brushing and flossing and pretend all is well that somehow, things will get better (or at least won’t get any worse). We understand, however, we remind you that this is usually the worst approach because things will become worse for your oral health. Remember that treating smile damage is always important!

Damaged Dental Work

You might assume that damaged dental work is something you don’t really need to worry about because a crown or something similar is artificial. If it’s damaged, it’s not like it’s living tissue that is going to become infected, right? Well, this is accurate. However, you should remember that when you’re protecting your oral health, that means protecting your smile’s balance, function, hygiene, and more. While a crown itself might not become much more damaged, it may expose the covered tooth to bacteria, it may negatively affect your bite’s balance, and more! See us ASAP if you need a repair.

Damaged Teeth

Unlike damaged dental work, which affects your smile but that isn’t going to become infected on your own, your teeth are a different matter. When you neglect to address damage, from cracks to serious breakage, you are making your smile extremely vulnerable to infection. You don’t want this to happen because it can become very uncomfortable and destructive to your oral health. Fix your smile with our care immediately.

Cosmetic Damage

While you’re not hurting your oral health at all if you avoid doing something about esthetic damage, we do want you to keep in mind that cosmetic care can be important. Remember, it can make you go from feeling not-great about yourself to wonderful. In addition, certain types of damage are going to get worse and worse but not better on their own. This may include chipped areas and yellowing. So, go ahead and call us! We’ll make your smile look lovely.
