Fixing tooth damage from grinding: how Expat Dental can help

Tooth grinding or clenching during sleep can be detrimental to your dental health. If you wake up with sore jaws or constantly feel tooth sensitivity, you might be suffering from bruxism (tooth grinding). This habit can wear down your enamel, exposing the sensitive dentin underneath. While exercises can help curb the habit, they won’t reverse the damage already done. Fortunately, Expat Dental offers veneers to address both the aesthetic and functional damage caused by tooth grinding.

Addressing damage from tooth grinding with Veneers

Understanding the Impact of Bruxism

Bruxism involves grinding or clenching your teeth, often during sleep. This can lead to several dental issues, including:

  • Enamel Wear: Repeated grinding can erode the enamel, leading to tooth sensitivity.
  • Chipped Teeth: Continuous pressure can cause pieces of enamel to break off.
  • Jaw Pain: The stress from grinding can strain the jaw muscles, causing discomfort.

These problems can affect your smile and overall oral health. Veneers can restore the appearance and function of your teeth, providing a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution.

How veneers can help

Veneers are thin porcelain shells that cover the front surface of your teeth, offering a quick and effective way to:

  • Restore tooth shape and size: Veneers can rebuild the worn-down or chipped areas of your teeth.
  • Correct color: They provide a uniform and natural-looking color that resists staining.
  • Enhance symmetry: Veneers can create a balanced and even look, improving the overall appearance of your smile.

At Expat Dental, our expert team customizes each veneer to match your natural teeth, ensuring a seamless and beautiful result.

Other issues we see at Expat Dental related to tooth grinding, include misaligned and chipped teeth. Our team uses veneers to:

  • Rebuild worn teeth: Veneers restored the length and shape of the upper teeth.
  • Improve symmetry: Correcting the alignment of the front teeth and adding volume to the first molars.
