The work itself, though, doesn’t have to always be invasive or major or time-consuming. Yes, some people will need extensive treatment to revamp their oral health and the appearance of their smile, but others can get the full-mouth reconstruction they need with smaller upgrades over time. Find out where your smile falls on the spectrum.

You Have a Worn-Out Smile

What qualifies as a worn-out smile? Lots of characteristics fall into this category, including:

  • Worn enamel: Enamel works hard every day and, for some people, it can wear out. Thin or weak enamel is naturally at risk over time.
  • Broken or chipped teeth: A chip or break in a tooth is not only a visual problem, it’s one that allows bacteria into the innerworkings of a tooth, making tooth decay an inevitability.
  • Difficulty eating: Biting and chewing should be easy, almost without a second thought. If this basic function is a struggle, you may be suffering from an infection like gum disease.
  • Soreness: Mouth discomfort interrupts meals, smiles, speech, and pretty much everything you do. If have chronic discomfort, neuromuscular treatments might be necessary.

You Have Tooth Pain

One of the biggest signs of a worn-out smile is tooth pain, but many people try to muscle through this problem and tell themselves it will eventually go away. A toothache, though, is an indication that something is wrong deep down in a tooth and, even if the pain comes and goes, there is definitely something wrong.

Even if you end up not having any cavities or other infections, you may suffer from teeth grinding and clenching, which can cause pain in so many ways, from headaches to sore teeth, gum recession to broken teeth, worn enamel to ringing in the ears.
