TOOTHWEAR AND EROSION
Worn teeth usually occurs when the outer surface of the teeth is lost due to the wear and tear that teeth undergo. However, certain factors can intensify this irreversible loss, leading to increased reduction of tooth substance.
The loss of tooth substance may be a result of mechanical factors such as an unbalanced bite, teeth grinding, jaw problems or increased chewing forces on the front teeth due to the lack of back teeth. It may also be caused by chemical factors such as acid damage from acidic foods and drink. In most cases there are usually both mechanical and chemical factors present which can cause many additional dental problems.
In order to restore your smile there are many solutions which vary depending on the complexity of your problem. We will carefully examine the extent of the the damage on your teeth before taking all possible steps to identify and present you with a comprehensive and definitive treatment.
