What can be done about my teeth?
I'm 15 years old, but my teeth already are in a bad way. They're not decaying or anything, I do look after them- they're just very worn down. My dentist suggested that I get braces to correct a bad overbite. I've gotten the braces, and while my teeth are straightening up really well, they're still wearing away. I don't know what to do! Could it be that I'm grinding them?
What can be done to stop this? And how can their appearance be improved?
Additional Details
Wow, thanks to everyone who has answered already!
What I mean by "wearing away" is that they have been worn down, the incisors are no longer the same length, but they don't appear to have been chipped- if that makes sense.
I don't mean that they're yellow, they're not.
Lastly- can you get a nightguard with braces? I read that you can't because you're teeth are moving too much.

Go to your local docter and ask him about a mouth guard if you are grinding your teeth it will protect you teeth and it will stop you from grinding your teeth.

try chewing two pieces of orbit gum or any kind of gum after u eat a meal. Stay away from hard candy or anything hard enough to hurt teeth.
do not whiten your teeth.
drink a lot of milk and eat some vitamins.
it may help
i had the same problem before and thats what my dentist told me to do.
The tip about the milk was from my mom the nutreints from the milk really helps!!!!
: )

My friend has this issue and im not sure if she does anything regularly to help it. But i know that her dentist gave her flouride to brush her teeth with and that has been helping her. I would try to get them whitend, if not, ask your dentist about flouride. Good Luck!!

bleach .. eat if u start to grid or tap ur foot... i no some one that its was in the genes there teath looked bad.. take calcium pills

If you are grinding them, you'd need to get a night guard, and those things are terrible. I grind my teeth and had one. They have new ones, though, that just fit over one tooth. My husband just got it and he actually uses it since it doesn't leave spit all over the pillow. Gross.

wear a mouth gard to bed. you might be grinding them in your sleep.

sounds like you grind them in your sleep.

I wouldn't worry too much as you have your braces still on...is your dentist or orthodontist monitoring this? They would be the most knowledgeable about what to do.
What does wearing away mean? like eroding or are you just losing enamel? If it[s enamel then there is toothpaste that will help protect and restore.
Also be wary of acidic foods like lemons and such, they eat away at your teeth.

If you are grinding, you can get a night guard, which will prevent damage to your teeth.
teeth grinding is called bruxism.

veneers if thats how you spell it.. its a material that lays over teeth giving the appearance of perfect teeth. and they last forever

a question best asked to your dentist he will give you all your options

try a pro-enamel toothpaste and/or mouth guard

Drink milk and take lots of vitamin D with calcium. To make sure your not grinding at night while sleeping, go get a mouth guard from Sporting good store and you will see a major difference. Your too young for it to be anything else. Good luck to you.
