Effective treatments for damaged and worn teeth
‘Tooth wear’ is the deterioration of your teeth, usually diagnosed by your dentist (which is why it is important you go for regular checkups). There may be discolouration to the teeth, or changes in shape and size. Becoming sensitive to hot and cold food and drink can also be an indication of tooth wear.
Grinding/clenching your teeth, drinking fizzy drinks and acid reflux can also contribute to the wear and tear of your teeth, causing unsightly damage and discomfort.
In cases where damage and wear to teeth is extensive, specialist treatment is often required to improve the appearance of your teeth and prevent further damage.
What’s involved in the treatment process?
There are a number of reasons why your teeth can wear. Identifying the cause can be challenging due to the complex nature and gradual progression over time, however this is an important part of the consultation process in order to treat not just the symptoms of tooth wear but also the causes.
There are four main steps to managing tooth wear:
2. Prevent and protect
3. Restorative care (if needed)
4. Monitor and maintain

Active prevention and monitoring, composite bonding, adhesive crowns and conventional crowns are all things that we can consider depending on your individual circumstances. Where possible, we use non-invasive treatment but for more advanced cases, restoring and protecting the tooth is our main priority.
