Tooth wear is a common dental problem, and can happen naturally as we age. Over time, teeth can become darker with yellow stains, and even change shape – often they appear squarer or simply worn down.
Lifestyle factors can have a great effect on tooth wear, but the simple fact is that getting older can lead to worn down teeth. While the types of food and drink we consume, and whether or not we smoke can impact our teeth, there are three main types of tooth wear:
Depending on the level of the tooth wear present, we have a variety of different ways in which we can treat patients with tooth wear. These range from preventive measures to restoration and replacement. Some patients may need a crown or filling to help restore a tooth or teeth that have been affected by tooth wear, while others may simply be able to manage their tooth wear through better brushing techniques and lifestyle changes. In severe cases, we may suggest a nightguard to help protect the teeth from grinding overnight, or even a dental bridge or implant.Back to General Dentistry
