This patient’s lower teeth were worn down from years of grinding and clenching. We discussed crowning all the lower teeth, but I wanted to try bonding composite to the tops of the teeth to build them back up. He will eventually wear this away, but it’s easy for me to add to and re-bond the teeth as he wears them down over the years. I also made him a nightguard to wear when he sleeps to protect the teeth.
This patient had worn down her teeth due to years of grinding. I filled in and restored the tops of the teeth with dental ceramic composite bonding, and made her a nightguard to protect her teeth in the future.
