Why do teeth chip or become worn?

Dental decay– dental decay or caries or cavities have the ability to weaken your teeth and predispose your teeth to chip or wear much easier.

Getting unlucky with a bad bite – sometimes if you enjoy eating ice cubes, hard lollies, bones, or minties you are just going to get unlucky.

Trauma – a hard hit to the face may result in a chipped front tooth or front teeth.

Bruxism– clenching or grinding your teeth over a long period of time can occasionally lead to you getting a chipped tooth especially if your tooth enamel is already thinner because of it. Wear is foten seen due to bruxism.

Diet – one of the main reasons why teeth can become weakened is due to acid attack on your teeth; fruit juices, soft drinks, and energy drinks are usually associated with this although excessive alcohol use, frequent vomiting, and acid reflux can also cause this.

Surprising reasons for chipped teeth – tongue piercings, crooked teeth and nail biting all can occasionally lead to you being more likely to chip or wear your teeth.
