Millions of American men and women suffer from eating disorders. Most of the damage to teeth in bulimic patients occur during purging episodes. The damage is detected mainly around the upper front teeth. What commonly occurs is tooth enamel is worn down, sensitivity to hot and cold increases and the teeth start to chip and thin out.

There are many ways our team of dentists at Haverford Smiles can improve the smile of a patient whose teeth have been affected by eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia. The best way to understand the possibilities for your smile are to view our before and after photos of bulimia / cosmetic dentistry cases below.  We’re so happy to have the opportunity to give back lost confidence through cosmetic dentistry and would love to do the same for you. All of our patients are also given several oral health tips to reduce the risk of any future dental health problems that may arise.
