My Teeth are Damaged, Short and Worn Down

Header Award Logo Update 2021
There are a number of potential reasons your teeth could be damaged, short and worn down. If you can’t think of other reasons you could be grinding your teeth during sleep.
Tooth grinding has a number of symptoms, some of these include teeth that:
  • Are gradually shortening and wearing down over the years
  • Have generalized chips and cracks, or
  • Are gradually thinning

Whatever the damage is, it is important to look into all possible options to strengthen your teeth as certain damage on teeth can lead to further deterioration and in the worst case scenario loss of teeth. Past a certain point, it can be more expensive to fix than if the problems had been addressed earlier.

Treating Options

Treating Length

  • Porcelain Veneers/ Porcelain Crowns/ Porcelain Bridges
    Generally 2-3 weeks start to finish.
  • Invisalign and orthodontics
    Depending on your conditions, it can take generally from 9 months to 18 months. Time may vary from case to case.
  • Gum lift with Porcelain Veneers
    Either done 2 weeks before or on the day of the treatment for veneers
  • Gum lift with braces or Invisalign
    It is done at the end of your orthodontic treatment once your teeth are all aligned.

Does it Hurt?

Naturally, some dental procedures may cause some discomfort depending on treatment type and individual pain threshold.

We endeavour to ensure you you are as comfortable as possible during treatments and offer sedation options for those fearful of treatment, so you can wake up to your new smile without feeling a thing!
