Prevention Of Excessive Toothwear

Worn teeth can affect your appearance and can be very ageing.  Prevention is very important, so we will monitor your teeth for early signs of toothwear.

Grinding your teeth, usually at night while you are sleeping, can cause varying degrees of toothwear. It is important to recognise this early before too much tooth structure has been lost, when it can then become very difficult to restore the teeth.

If there are signs of wear on your teeth we will monitor it, to see if it is something that occurred in the past or if it is ongoing. If it is still occurring we can make you a protective guard for you to wear at night.

If the appearance of your teeth has already been affected by toothwear we can help to restore them back to a more natural, youthful appearance.
