Tooth Erosion

Tooth erosion is a gradual wearing away of tooth enamel, the hard outer surface of teeth. It can be caused by many factors, including acid wear from foods and drinks, plaque accumulation, and chemical erosion from tobacco and other drugs. Tooth erosion can lead to cavities and even loss of teeth if left untreated.

The procedure for tooth erosion treatment involves the use of a dental restoration to rebuild the tooth enamel that has been lost. The restoration can be a dental filling, crown, or veneer, depending on the severity of the erosion. If the erosion is only on the surface of the tooth, a dental filling may be sufficient. If the erosion is more severe, a dental crown or veneer may be needed.

Tooth erosion is a condition that results when the hard tissues of the teeth are worn away. This can happen when the teeth are exposed to acids over time. The acids can come from many sources, such as foods and drinks, plaque, and even the air. If left untreated, tooth erosion can lead to cavities and even loss of teeth. A tooth erosion treatment may include special dental procedures or medications to help protect the teeth from further damage.

If tooth erosion is not addressed, it can lead to a variety of dental problems, including cavities, tooth sensitivity, and even tooth loss. Tooth erosion can be caused by a number of factors, such as consuming sugary drinks or acidic foods, grinding your teeth, or using tobacco products. If left untreated, tooth erosion can cause significant damage to your teeth and may require expensive dental treatment.
