Porcelain Veneers are Best TMJ Solution
If you have crooked, misaligned teeth you may have more problems than you first realize. Having a smile that you are not proud of is just one issue that is purely cosmetic but can cause real insecurities. Not being able to smile freely and openly can directly affect your relationship with the world. However, a larger problem that misaligned teeth and a bad bite can cause is TMJ Disorder. Your Temporomandibular Joint, TMJ, is responsible for normal movement and function of your lower jaw. It controls everything from talking to eating to yawning. Your TMJ controls any normal task of your mouth. If your TMJ is in anyway affected by the misalignment of your jaw or teeth, the results can be extremely painful.
It used to be that correcting a misaligned jaw or bad bite was something an orthodontist would handle with braces. Braces take years to provide results and can be very painful in their own right. If you are suffering from TMJ Syndrome you know that waiting years for relief is not a preferred solution. Fortunately, there is a better solution to both your practical and cosmetic issues. Porcelain veneers are now being used to not only improve the appearance of your teeth but also to improve the function of your TMJ.
The benefits of Porcelain Veneers and Lumineers
Porcelain veneers have many benefits in regards to their ability to fix your teeth and TMJ function. One of the most noticeable benefits of veneers is that the results are much quicker than braces. You can have your custom-made porcelain veneers within two visits to your TMJ specialist. After a consultation and a mold for your veneers is created on the first visit, your mold is sent to the lab to custom make your veneers for not only a comfortable but also an aesthetically pleasing set of veneers. With braces you not only have to wear them for years, but they are also unsightly and relegated to stereotypes for a reason. Veneers are a more reliable solution for quickly fixing your teeth.
Lumineers are the most advanced form of veneers available. Lumineers are as thin as an eye contact lens and are specially patented to fit directly on your existing teeth. They are completely painless and create the most natural looking results. Millennium Dental specializes in treating TMJ patients with Lumineers brand porcelain veneers.
