Tooth Wear Care

Over time, everyone will experience some level of tooth wear, but there are factors that can exacerbate the extent to which this may happen.

The most common of these factors include

  • grinding (bruxism),
  • erosion (especially from acidic food and drink)
  • abrasion (e.g. brushing your teeth too vigorously)

In some situations the level of wear can lead to teeth looking short and unattractive. They may even become sensitive and you may also experience jaw or muscle ache.

At Gwynne Dental, our dentists promote a preventative approach. We can offer you practical, easy-to-follow advice which will cover diet and lifestyle changes and will also take the time to discuss your oral health regime so that we can identify areas that require improvement. We may suggest a discrete, clear night guard to help protect your teeth.

If your teeth have become quite worn and you would like to look at cosmetic options that will restore your smile, there are a number of treatments that can help you achieve a beautiful smile once again including veneers, crowns, and composite bonding (white filling material).
