Solutions to common dental problems
You may be concerned that your teeth look shorter than they used to, discoloured or they seem more sensitive?
Tooth wear is the irreversible loss of tooth structure. Tooth wear can be unsightly, can impair use of your teeth, lead to discomfort or pain, and make you more susceptible to tooth decay and tooth sensitivity and eventual tooth loss.
Teeth can get worn down from erosion, attrition and abrasion. These are non-bacterial way of losses your tooth structure.
Placing white coloured fillings on the teeth that have been worn down and discoloured will help reduce sensitivity and also build up the tooth.
The placement of tooth coloured filling will improve the appearance both in shape and colour without removing excess tooth structure.
The filling is colour matched to your teeth and sculpted to bring it back to its original form. You can choose to have this on one tooth or many, depending on the level of erosion, the look you want and of course your budget.
