Worn Down Teeth Treatment Mandurah

Despite your teeth being the hardest substance in your body (harder than bone!), they can still suffer damages. This is part of the natural life cycle of teeth. Everyone goes through the aging process, although some lifestyle choices are to blame for the early onset of this condition.

Are you suffering from the effects of worn-down teeth? Do you feel like your teeth have lost their strength? Do you feel a sudden pain when you bite into your food or when you drink a cold drink? If yes, then your teeth might have worn down.

Thanks to the advancement in technology, worn-down teeth can still be remedied. At Platinum Smile Dental our worn-down teeth treatment is a quality-approved procedure. Read on to learn more!

What Causes Worn Down Teeth

There are a number of factors that come into play when we talk about worn-down teeth. Below are some of the common reasons:

9

Aging

As one ages and goes through life, your teeth’s quality will also deteriorate. Just as your bones become brittle, your teeth will also become weaker and be more vulnerable.

9

Bruxism and clenching

Bruxism is the involuntary grinding of the upper and lower teeth. The constant pressure between the two arches will in time weaken the teeth. This can be triggered by stress and is usually prevalent at night, during sleep.

Abrasion

Believe it or not, there is such thing as too much brushing. Rigorous, incorrect brushing of your teeth, coupled with toothpaste and mouthwash with harsh chemicals can cause physical abrasion.

9

Lifestyle

Your diet and nutrition affects your teeth too. Exposing yourself to too much acidic food without the needed aftercare, can have effects. Activities that endanger your teeth such as contact sports is also one example.

Stained Or Discoloured Teeth

Signs that you have worn down teeth

Worn-down teeth are relatively easy to spot. Teeth and can appear shorted with sharp edges or flattened and concave surfaces. With proper observation, you can see the signs when you inspect them in front of the mirror. For the correct diagnosis, we recommend booking a dental appointment.

Below are some of the signs of worn-down teeth:

9

Yellow teeth

Not all yellowed teeth fall under teeth discoloration. In this case, it can be because the outer layer (the enamel) has worn away. The enamel is whitish in nature, but the dentin beneath that is yellowish. This is one reason why we strongly discourage drugstore teeth whitening kits. You can only do more harm than good.

9

Difficulty in mastication

Chewing and biting your food with worn-down teeth is harder. Your bite is weaker and your tooth may even be loose.

Worn-Down Teeth Solutions in Mandurah

During your dental checkup, your dentist Mandurah will check the state of your teeth and propose the dental treatments needed from there.

Determining the cause of the problem is an essential part of the process. If, for example, the cause is bruxism, aside from restorative services, you may be asked to wear a night guard and be referred to our Grinding and Clenching solutions. Our aim is to save your natural teeth and improve their performance.

We offer high-grade restorative dental services as part of our worn-down teeth solutions in Mandurah. Aside from protecting teeth, our restorative dental equipment have the look and feel of natural teeth.

Stained Or Discoloured Teeth

Crowns and bridges

The teeth can be covered with dental crowns and bridges to protect from further strain, reinstate strength, and improved appearance.

9

Dental bonding

If the wear isn’t too significant yet that they need to be covered with a dental crown, a dental bonding may be the solution. The teeth’s surfaces are bonded with a composite material to cover the worn-down portions and protect it.

9

Night Guard

A night guard is similar to mouthguard, except that this is worn at night, during sleep. This is will protect the teeth when the upper and lower arch clench and grind against each other.

We also provide teeth-friendly lifestyle tips to keep your teeth at their best for as long as possible.

If Ignored

It is important to recognise the causing factors of your worn-down teeth and take preventative measures as soon as possible. Worn down teeth can lead to TMJ, impaired eating and speech, changed to your appearance specifically the lower half of your face. It could also lead to cause issues in the nerves in your teeth, which is highly discomforting.

The longer you delay treatment, the more damage this can cause to your teeth. We want to save your natural teeth as much as possible, but without your willingness to submit yourself for a checkup, this may be harder to achieve.
