Damage from everyday wear can start to erode the surface of your teeth. If there is some form of imbalance in your smile, this damage can become more severe. For instance, temporomandibular joint disorder can cause one side of your mouth to experience more use than the other. Your mouth is designed to share the stress of chewing and speaking through the entire area. When one or two teeth take the brunt of this damage, you can lose enamel at the point of contact. If you experience a condition such as malocclusion, the worn area might also be unattractive or even harmful to your health.
Porcelain veneers can help you restore the size and shape of your teeth. Other forms of enamel wear can come as a result of normal dental use. If you have chips or cracks from damage from eating, porcelain veneers can be helpful in the repair of your teeth.
