Sometimes every smile needs a refresh. Patients with a chipped or worn smile often feel a lack of confidence to smile, especially in public or for photographs. Luckily, treatment for chipped and worn smiles is one of the services that Dr Joe Oliver provides.
Tooth wear is very common but can easily lead to a loss of confidence. At Joe Oliver, we believe that being more willing to smile means you’re more likely to be happy, and so we strive to make sure you have the confidence you need to smile and enjoy life.
Worn teeth are when you experience loss of the surface of your teeth. This can result in increased sensitivity and discoloration, which in turn leads to a loss of confidence that affects your everyday life.
There are many ways that teeth can become chipped or worn.
Some of the most common causes can include damage from food and drink, especially from acidic items. Chips can also occur if you bite down on something hard such as bone, hard sweets, or ice cubes. It is even possible for your teeth to be damaged from an injury to the face such as a sports injury.
Dr Oliver qualified from Kings College Hospital School of Medicine and Dentistry in 1987 and has over 30 years experience in cosmetic dentistry. He has fitted over 40,000 veneers and his work has been widely seen on television.
