Does Teeth Grinding Affect Dental Veneers?
Are you wondering whether you are a good candidate for veneers? Do you grind your teeth when you sleep? Veneers are an effective and affordable cosmetic treatment to improve your smile. Veneers are very thin shells that are cemented on the front of teeth to cover up chips or cracks. Veneers can whiten your teeth, change the shape of your teeth, close gaps, and hide any crooked teeth. An improved smile can increase your self-esteem and confidence.
If you want veneers, you should not grind or clench your teeth at night. If you do, this can be corrected with a mouthguard to be worn while you sleep. The mouthguard will prevent you from wearing down your teeth when you clench and grind them at night. One more thing. If your teeth are severely misaligned, the veneers could crack under the pressure. However, veneers can fix slightly crooked teeth.
