Don’t Let Your Dental Health Erode

Tooth enamel is the hard covering that protects our teeth from the daily wear and tear of biting and chewing, along with other forms of friction, and when a person begins to suffer from tooth enamel erosion they can experience poor appearance (such as chips and discoloration) and painful sensations. It also sets the foundation for tooth decay and cavities to develop so that any unaddressed erosion can lead to serious consequences.

Causes Of Tooth Wear

To properly proceed with tooth wear repair, it’s important that a dental professional establishes the cause. Tooth enamel wear due to erosion, attrition, and abrasion can be caused by the following:

  • Carbonated Drinks, Like Soda

  • Reflux, Anorexia, and Bulimia
  • Tooth Grinding
  • Tongue Piercings
