FAQ:  Bulimia

Video: Acid Erosion Treatment

  • BULIMIA: Causes and effects: Well, I've just recently started purging. It has been a year at the least. I can already see the great damage that this disorder is causing me both mentally, emotionally, and physically. But my concern for the moment is that my smile used to be one of several great features I had, but now it is gone. I had some nasty cavities that I know didn't help much. I now have multiple tooth gaps on my top row, an overbite on my bottom row and actual breakage of individual teeth. All of my teeth are now yellow ALL OVER! I am just asking, if there is anything you recomend that I can do to get at least what used to be my smile? ...Visitor from GA     (answer)

  • Bulimia and tooth whitening: I am a recovering bulimic who still purges on occasion. I have braces at the moment to correct my large open bite, and will be getting crowns soon to restore the proper proportions of my teeth, which likely wore down from the years of purging. My teeth are very yellow, maybe greyish, and I am wondering what the effects of having a professional tooth whitening procedure (laser or otherwise...what are the options here, even?) would do for my wore down teeth? I am most nervous about the contrast between the crowns I will soon get on my front teeth versus the rest of my teeth remaining. ...Visitor from Canada     (answer)

  • How to minimize Bulimia damage? I've been dealing with bulimia on and off for about 5 years (I am 22 years old). For the last 6 months it's got much worse and I've been purging at least once a day. I am trying to stop but am pretty sure it's going to carry on for a while longer. Is there anything I can to minimize the damage to my teeth? Something straight after being sick, or as part of a daily routine? ...Visitor from London UK     (answer)

  • Bulimia and Teeth Whitening: I am bulimic. My teeth are still in good condition, at least superficially, but I would like them to be whiter. Is it safe to use whitening strips? ...Visitor from MN     (answer)

  • Anorexia - Bulimic: I am 44 years old, and I have been anorexic and bulmic - non stop for the past 5 years, (it all began when I was a teenager). The enamel on the bottom of my front teeth is now clear and chipping. Though I still have a problem with throwing up, I need to do something about my teeth before they become more of a problem. Would veneers work for me, or would my eating disorder ruin them as well? I have and am continuing to make every effort to stop vomiting, but I still need to do something about my teeth. ...Visitor from FL     (answer)

  • Veneers for Bulimia? I am a 25 year old recovering bulemic. My teeth have definitely suffered as now they are smaller, yellower, and without enamel. I fear that without enamel they will jsut continue to deteriorate. I had been wanting to get procelain veneers, but then recently was told I was not a condidate since without enamel, procelain veneers cannot bond onto the teeth. Is that really true? I am devestated because having a nice smile again means the world to me. Even if I can't get porcelain veneers, what can I do? I would like to move on with my life, and fix my teeth, and need advice as to what procedures will work the best for me. Perhaps there are dentists who have experience working with buliemic patients? ...Visitor from CA     (answer)
