Tooth Wear and Excessive Staining

Excessive tooth wear can cause the loss in height of teeth which can lead to TMJ pain (temporomandibular joint syndrome). With increased wear of teeth over time, many seniors may notice an unaesthetic appearance. Adult teeth can also stain due to regular consumption of strong coloured food and drinks, along with smoking. Areas where enamel is worn are excellent places for debris and plaque to accumulate and stain over the years.

Also, as the protective enamel wears away, the yellowish dentin is more apparent, causing teeth to appear darker. Hypersensitivity of teeth is also common, and causes unnecessary discomfort in patients. We can help you with these two problems, and the earlier we see you, the better the long term outcome for your teeth. So don’t delay, book an appointment with us today.
