Bruxism

If you are unhappy with your smile due to damaged, chipped and cracked teeth or you have larger spaces between teeth than you would like, then cosmetic bonding may be an option for you.

Composite bonding uses the same material as that used in white fillings (composite) but in this case it is used to change the appearance of a tooth. It is called bonding because the material used bonds to the tooth.

Bruxism

The 22nd–28th October 2018 marks Bruxism Awareness week.

Bruxism is the clinical term for the grinding of teeth and clenching of the jaw. It can occur when you are awake or asleep but the latter is the most common, affecting almost 80% of bruxers.

You may not know that you grind your teeth while you are asleep. It may be a bed partner that first notices the grinding sounds and noises.
