What Causes the Surface of my Teeth to Change?

mature Gentleman Blue Shirt Smiling width of 400 pixelsYour tooth enamel is what protects your teeth. It is also the part of the tooth that takes the most impact or suffers the most damage. The enamel of your teeth is very hard, but that does not mean that it cannot be chipped, cracked or even stained. Occurrences in everyday life can cause your enamel to change to the dismay of many.

Your Daily Diet's affect on Teeth

Your diet plays a vital role in the appearance of your enamel. Drinking soda, coffee or tea can slowly cause the enamel to erode. In addition, sugary foods, carbohydrates and acidic foods can also eat away at the enamel, leaving your teeth vulnerable. If you do drink a large amount of soda, tea or coffee, make it a habit to brush your teeth more often than twice per day. You should also make every effort possible to eat a healthy diet that is low in sugar and refined carbs.

Normal Wear and Tear to Teeth

Aside from your diet, certain everyday activities can cause your teeth to have issues. Activities such as grinding your teeth while sleeping, nervous chewing and brushing your teeth too hard, can cause wear and tear on your teeth. This does not mean that you have to accept these changes. Seeing the dentist regularly can help you find the right solution for teeth grinding as well as a time to talk about any nervous habits or poor brushing habits that might be causing your teeth harm.
