What Is Tooth Wear? Causes And Treatment.

One of the most common problems we see in our patients today isn’t decay or gum disease. Believe it or not, it’s tooth wear! Have you noticed the edges of your teeth chipping? How about more translucent edges to your teeth? Have you noticed all of your front teeth are the same length? If so, watch this video for an explanation of some of the most common causes of wear we see in our practice. 

While some patients don’t realize their teeth are wearing down faster than they should be, other patients come to us because of esthetic concerns or sensitivity as a result of the wear. Dental bonding, Invisalign, and porcelain veneers are some of the procedures we do often for tooth wear. The sooner you have the wear diagnosed, the more options you have for correcting the problem. Often, the sooner you address it, the less invasive the treatment!

If you are concerned about your teeth, give us a call. We’re happy to take a look!
