Acid Wear And Tooth Damage
early stage acid wear can only be diagnosed by a dentist,
some telltale signs to look for include:
Your teeth may become sensitive to hot or cold foods, drinks
or outdoor temperature.
Teeth may lose their brightness or appear transparent or
thin at the biting edges.
Teeth begin to appear yellow in colour as the enamel wears
away and the underlying dentin shows through.
As acid wear progresses, teeth may develop a rounded
"sandblasted" look on the surface and edges.
Cracks or cupping
As acid wear progresses, small cracks and roughness may occur
at the edges of the teeth or dents may appear on the chewing surfaces.
