If you could have any superhero power what would it be? Would you choose to have the ability to fly? Would you choose to be invisible and see through things like walls? Although being able to see through walls would be pretty neat, when it comes to your teeth, the last thing you want is for them to be see-through. If your teeth have lost enamel and are looking clear near the bottom, Dr. Joel Smith can help. Read on to learn more.
Avoid Acidic Foods and Beverages
If you are at the beginning stages of enamel loss, you can do small things like avoiding acidic foods and beverages. The acid in things like soda, coffee, and citrus foods can break down your enamel and cause them to weaken faster. However, by cutting down on these foods and beverages, you can help prevent against your teeth weakening further.
If your enamel is really weak and is starting to break off on its own, then you may have to get dental veneers. By sanding down your existing teeth, Dr. Joel Smith will be able to glue dental veneers on them— leaving you with the ability to chew like normal without having to worry about your teeth breaking off.
