Tooth Wear

Tooth wear is caused by Attrition, Abrasion & Erosion in isolation or combination. Wear can be physiological or pathological.

Physiological Tooth Wear

Physiological wear occurs slowly throughout life and we adapt accordingly, often only becoming aware of its existence later in life.

Pathological Tooth Wear

Pathological wear happens at an advanced rate, often causing symptoms of pain and discomfort or poor aesthetics.

All forms of wear can be addressed by protecting prone surfaces with composite resins. In some instances veneers and crowns are required to restore the teeth back to their natural status.
