Full Mouth Rehabilitation
Teeth, when subjected to acidic foods (cordial, coke, frizzy drinks, citrus, vinegar and salad dressings) and excessive forces, can wear rapidly. Whilst some wear is normal, excessive wear can occur following grinding and clenching. Frequently, this happens while sleeping. Diseases, such as gastric reflux or bulimia could also accelerate tooth wear.
Teeth lack the ability to rebuild lost structure. Dental restorations such as veneers, crowns and implants are used to restore lost structure. Cases involving generalised tooth wear require careful treatment planning. Under such circumstances, your dentist may recommend treatment by a Specialist Prosthodontist.
