How Sleeping with Your Mouth Open Hurts Your Mouth
When you sleep with your mouth open, your mouth gets dry. This means that your saliva does not have the ability to help keep your teeth clean and protected. While you sleep, your teeth are constantly being coated with saliva. The saliva helps to add minerals and nutrients to your teeth. The saliva also prevents tooth decay and fights against gingivitis. By sleeping with your mouth open, the saliva in your mouth dries out, and you become more susceptible to all of these issues. If you constantly sleep with your mouth open, make sure to come in and talk to us about it. We can help!

What to Do About Broken Dental Veneers
Broken dental veneers can be a problem right away, or a problem you have a little bit of time to correct. It all depends on what the actual problem is. Sometimes, a dental veneer will fracture, meaning you will see a small chip or crack in the porcelain. Other times, your dental veneer can break completely off of your tooth. However, both problems need immediate attention so you can avoid any type of painful consequence.

When Your Dental Veneer Crack, They Can Be Fixed

Dental bonding is an easy fix when your dental veneers crack or chip. The bonding cement can fill in the slight issue, and you can go on about your day. This often takes little time, and your veneers often do not look any different after they have been fixed than they did before.

When Dental Veneers Debond, They Need Rebonding

When your dental veneers come off entirely, this is called debonding. What you need to have done at this time is have the dental veneers looked at to see if they can still be used. If they can, then you need them rebonded to your teeth. If not, you need a new set of veneers made.

Dental veneers that come off entirely are typically more painful than those that simply crack or chip. However, both have the potential of posing a problem for your teeth in very little time. Should you notice that something feels off with your dental veneers, give our office a call. We want to help!
