Don’t Ignore Your Back Teeth in Cosmetic Dentistry

Posted in Cosmetic Dentistry | May 15, 2024

cosmetic dentistry for back teethWhen it comes to cosmetic dentistry, many people focus solely on improving the appearance of their front teeth. However, cosmetic dentistry for back teeth plays an equally important role. 

Neglecting these posterior teeth can have severe consequences for your oral health and overall well-being. We will explore why back teeth care is necessary in cosmetic dentistry and how you can maintain your health.

Importance of Back Teeth Care 

Back teeth, also known as molars and premolars, help you chew, grind, and break down food. While they may not be as visible as front teeth, they are equally important for maintaining proper bite function and supporting overall oral health. 

Neglecting back teeth can lead to issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, and even tooth loss. It can impact your smile and also your ability to eat or speak comfortably.

Cosmetic Dentistry for Back Teeth 

Although professional cleanings can remove plaque and tartar buildup, you may have to opt for certain cosmetic dental procedures to prevent decay and gum disease.

The first and most popular procedure is composite fillings. If your back teeth have cavities or decay, consider opting for tooth-colored composite fillings instead of traditional metal amalgam fillings. Composite fillings blend seamlessly with your natural tooth color. It can provide aesthetic and functional benefits.

Another option is porcelain crowns. For more extensive damage or decay in back teeth, porcelain crowns can restore strength, function, and aesthetics. Porcelain crowns are custom-made to match the color and shape of your natural teeth, providing durable and long-lasting results.

Sometimes, Dr. Egger may also suggest dental bonding. It is a cosmetic procedure that can repair minor chips, cracks, or gaps in back teeth. In this case, he will apply a tooth-colored composite resin to the affected tooth. He may also sculpt it to achieve the desired shape and appearance.
