Tooth wear is a common concern for Purley south Croydon area patients. Dr. Suril Amin and the team at Sensational Smiles understated how this wear can have a negative effect on one’s smile. Tooth wear can be caused by a variety of issues, specifically poor oral health care habits or a condition called bruxism. Bruxism results when patients clench and grind their teeth. Treatment for tooth wear is available right in our office for patients interested in enhancing their smile and addressing imperfections.
How is tooth wear treated?
Teeth that have worn enamel can be treated in several different ways, depending on the severity of the wear and the specific tooth to be treated. Below is a small sampling of the ways in which tooth wear is treated:
- Tooth-coloured fillings – tooth-coloured fillings and materials such as composite resin bonding are often used to reshape the tooth structure and provide patients with a more attractive tooth appearance.
- Dental crowns – molars that are worn down require a restoration that is strong and durable enough to handle chewing and biting forces. Crowns are ceramic “caps” that can cover the entire exposed structure of the tooth and change its appearance.
- Porcelain veneers – veneers are thin facings that are fabricated and bonded onto the front of the tooth to disguise tooth wear.
