Tooth wear is an increasingly common problem these days and can be due to a variety of causes:
- A Natural side effect of ageing
- Excessive grinding or clenching, which affects mainly the biting edges of the teeth
- Acidic foods and drinks in our diet or by conditions like acid reflux and bulimia, which affects mainly the front and the back surfaces of the teeth
- Overzealous brushing, which affects mainly the front surfaces and the necks of the teeth.
