Teeth Grinding

At Coastal Cosmetic Dentistry, we are committed to improving your oral health as well as the function and appearance of your smile. The first step to treating teeth grinding is determining the cause of teeth grinding. Teeth grinding is usually caused by stress but may also be the result of sleep apnea, TMJ disorder, or misaligned teeth. Dr. Sinclair will perform a comprehensive examination to determine the root cause of teeth grinding. The goal is to treat the source of teeth grinding in hopes to alleviate your symptoms and prevent further damage.

If teeth grinding is left untreated, it can cause wear and tear on the teeth. Once you eliminate the desire to grind the teeth, Dr. Sinclair can recommend treatment to restore the appearance of damaged teeth. Depending on the extent of damage, Dr. Sinclair may recommend porcelain veneers, dental bonding, or dental crowns to repair your teeth.
