Teeth Straightening in BanburyDo I really need to straighten my teeth?

Most people want to get their teeth straightened for cosmetic reasons, however, crooked, misaligned and gapped teeth can also cause serious health problems. When teeth are not properly aligned, it is much harder to reach between them and clean them properly. This can lead to plaque build-up, eventually causing tooth decay and gum disease. Straight teeth are easier to brush and floss.

Crooked teeth also put stress on your gums, causing chronic jaw pain and headaches. Straightening your teeth will help to alleviate these symptoms. Last but not least, you may not realise how your teeth affect your speech. Protruding teeth can cause you to lisp or have difficulty pronouncing words correctly.

Replace old crowns and veneers in Banbury

Dental veneers and porcelain crowns are ideal and affordable treatment options for people with crooked, chipped or gapped teeth. Both treatments are minimally invasive since they do not require surgery and can be completed in a few visits to the dentist.

Replace Old Crowns and VeneersUnlike removable devices like dentures, dental crowns are fixed onto the teeth. Crowns are used to cover damaged teeth, but they also help strengthen them, improving their overall appearance and alignment. Besides their cosmetic effect, crowns can also help you bite and chew better, therefore improving your quality of life significantly. Once in place, dental crowns will work just like your natural teeth. They are able to withstand normal biting and chewing forces, though they require regular care, maintenance and replacement as they can become loose over time.

Dental veneers, on the other hand, are thin, custom-made, tooth-coloured porcelain shells, which are attached to the front side of teeth. Dental veneers are ideal for fixing various imperfections and providing a solution to more than one dental problems. They can help shape too small, too big or uneven teeth, and they can also fix oddly shaped, chipped, slightly crooked or gapped teeth. Dental veneers are extremely versatile. They correct dental problems with minimal preparation to the tooth, allowing you to preserve more of your natural, healthy tooth structure.

With good oral care and regular visits to the dentist, your crowns and veneers should last you a long time. However, as with all dental work, they can fail over time as a result of wear and tear or damage. In this case, our experienced dentists at Amsel & Wilkins in Banbury, will restore them using the latest technology and materials for a healthy, natural smile.

Crowns are generally very reliable and do not require a lot of extra care, but there are still things that can go wrong with them. Old crowns, in particular, can wear out, break or even fall off when you least expect it. Proper oral hygiene will ensure that your crowns will last for longer, but you may need to replace them after a certain period.

The same applies for veneers, which can be threatened by gum disease. Decay under crowns and veneers is hard to notice and requires good oral hygiene along with regular dental care.
