As you age, it’s natural for your tooth enamel to wear down. An average adult of age (26-30) might have lost millimeters of teeth caused due to chewing and drinking, and it is completely normal. However, if you are experiencing excess wear beyond what is considered normal. This can lead to several problems such as tooth sensitivity, yellowed teeth, unattractive smiles, etc. Therefore it’s best advised to consult a Dentist sooner rather than later.

Abrasion is another type of tooth wear that is caused by behavioral habits such as brushing, biting fingernails, and wearing oral jewelry.
