Q.

Dental Crowns

I feel that my teeth are weak even though I brush them twice a day, rinse and floss!
Can weakness be caused by biting on my teeth when I sleep!
If that is the case would the best thing be to get a bite plate (guard)!
I know that prices vary from Dentist to dentist but are Crowns and Bite Plates generally expensive?
