Does your teeth grinding habit file down your teeth?
There can be a number of factors that cause or contribute to worn teeth. Teeth grinding and jaw clenching is a common cause of teeth that appear worn, flat or have small chips or cracks. Certain types of foods and medications can also erode tooth enamel. They can make teeth look dull and more likely to chip, break, or stain.
Broken teeth often occur as the result of an injury or accident. Our Annapolis dentists can repair all types of dental problems and restore teeth to optimal health, function, and esthetics.
Drs. Lee, Bonfiglio, & Vesely have years of experience restoring teeth that are worn, cracked or damaged. They take a comprehensive approach to your dental needs. The key to restoring both aesthetics and dental health is to fully evaluate all aspects of your smile. We will identify the underlying cause of your oral health concerns.
An existing bite or TMJ related disorder may be leading to teeth grinding and resulting in wear on the teeth. Addressing a bite problem as part of your overall treatment is the key to stabilizing your dental health and repairing any damage.
