Worn down teeth are a common dental issue that can lead to both aesthetic and functional problems. At Pure Dental Health, Dr. Justin Scott and his team in Marietta are committed to addressing this concern with comprehensive cosmetic dental solutions.

Causes of Worn Down Teeth

There are several different reasons why permanent teeth wear down over time, including the following:

  • Bruxism: Grinding or clenching teeth, often during sleep, is a primary cause of tooth wear.
  • Acidic Diet: Regular consumption of acidic foods and beverages can erode tooth enamel.
  • Poor Dental Habits: Aggressive brushing or using teeth as tools can contribute to wear.
  • Age-Related Wear: Natural wear and tear occur over time as part of the aging process.
  • Misaligned Teeth: Improper alignment can cause uneven wear patterns.

How Can a Cosmetic Dentist Help?

At Pure Dental Health, we offer several treatments to address worn down teeth, enhancing both function and appearance:

  • Dental Bonding: For minor wear, bonding using composite resin can reshape and protect teeth.
  • Dental Crowns: Crowns are ideal for severely worn teeth, providing strength and improving aesthetics.
  • Veneers: Porcelain veneers offer a cosmetic solution for worn, chipped, or discolored teeth.
  • Orthodontics: Correcting misalignment can prevent further wear and improve overall oral health.
  • Mouthguards: Custom mouthguards are effective in preventing damage due to teeth grinding.

Comprehensive Evaluation and Personalized Treatment

Dr. Scott and his team at Pure Dental Health conduct thorough evaluations to determine the underlying cause of tooth wear. Based on this assessment, a personalized treatment plan is developed to address both the cosmetic and functional aspects of worn down teeth.

Preventive Measures and Ongoing Care

Prevention is key in managing worn down teeth. We provide guidance on proper dental care, dietary adjustments, and protective devices like nightguards. Regular dental check-ups help monitor and maintain dental health, preventing future wear.
