It’s estimated that two out of three people apply too much pressure when brushing their teeth. Not only can this contribute to receding gums, but it can actually create grooves in the surface of your teeth, too.

So, how do you know if you’re guilty of too much toothbrush gusto? If you can’t hear the bristles moving while you brush your teeth, you’re brushing too hard. Ideally, you should lightly glide a soft brush over your teeth to remove plaque.

For teeth that have grooves as a result of aggressive brushing, bonding can help revitalize your smile by smoothing the ridges in the tooth surface and improving color. Quick and usually painless, it involves using a light to harden and smooth the plastic material, creating a natural-looking result.
