Hi everyone, finally found a place that discussed teeth. The problem with my teeth is enamel started wearing away the white off of my teeth and they are becoming clear. First it was a little on the top front two, but now it is spreading and more enamel disappears. That isn't the scary part, the teeth all around the front two including the bottom ones are also losing enamel. It's getting pretty ugly and unaware of the cause. I used to brush my teeth every time that I ate food, but cut down and only brush once or twice a day... and very lightly, where before I brushed vigorously. That method doesn't seem to be improving this situation. So, I was at the dentist earlier this year and asked about it... but she said my teeth looked good. I asked if it was because I was brushing too hard, she said that's not the problem.. and asked me if I bit down on my teeth, grinded, I said not to my knowledge, I used to. Could happen is sleep but the enamel is wearing off my teeth, and it's becoming an ugly see-through deal. Anybody know of any cures, or any information. I'm tempted to revisit the dentist and have a showdown to figure out what I need to do to get this under control, it's not getting better fast... neither is my confidence, but oh well.
