Q.

chipping and breaking teeth

Hi Doc
My teeth have always been weak. I have lost two of my molar and have lots of fillings. I am recently experiencing chipping and breaking of my teeth. I would be eating something soft and my tooth will just chip
Its actually quite horrible. I am only 30.
Please can you provide me with some advice on what to do and how to strenghten my teeth?

there's not much you can do to stregthen the tooth structure. Some condtions cause the enamel of the teeth to be naturally waek and to break off.
speak to your dentist about treatment options to restore these teeth
