Sensitive teeth may not be just something you have to live with. There are different causes of sensitive teeth and Dr. Judy Strutz and her team can help evaluate what the root cause of the problem is in order to help you come up with a solution that saves you from pain. Usually sensitivity or pain comes after you have consumed something hot, cold, sweet or acidic. Each of these things can cause a continual problem if you are trying to consume a variety of food and enjoy your life.
Consuming high acidic beverages, gum recession, and brushing incorrectly are just a few of the reasons why sensitivity may occur. After time, the dentin on the front of the teeth begins to wear down. Once this has worn down, because the dentin contains a large number of pores, it may begin to cause sensitivity. You do have options. Veeners and crowns are a great way to decrease sensitivity while keeping your natural smile intact.
Veneers and crowns both fit over natural teeth. They are shaped and colored to match the rest of your teeth. Once they are placed you are able to eat and consume any food or drinks that you would naturally.
