Tooth Erosion is caused by a combination of factors including bacteria in the mouth, frequent snacking, sipping sweet drinks and not cleaning the teeth properly.

HOW IS TOOTH EROSION TREATED?
Dental erosion does not always need to be treated. With regular check-ups and advice your dental team can prevent the problem getting any worse and the erosion going any further. If a tooth does need treatment, it is important to protect the enamel and the dentine underneath to prevent sensitivity. Usually, simply bonding a filling onto the tooth will be enough to repair it. However, in more severe cases the dentist may need to fit a veneer.
