Guard Against Grinding

Nothing causes an aged look in the smile more than worn-down front teeth. In fact, unless this habit is caught early on, it can continue to wear the teeth so much that, as we enter our thirties or forties, the smile begins to show less and less teeth.

As a preventative measure, Atlanta cosmetic dentist Ronald Goldstein, DDS, suggests asking your dentist to use an intraoral camera to see if you have early signs of grinding. He or she may be able to see how and where your teeth are being affected.

If visiting a cosmetic dentist or orthodontist isn't currently an option, you may want to try one of the over-the-counter night guards that help prevent sleep grinding, such as the SleepRight Select Adjustable Night Guard.
