We found a web page that has some photos of a bulimia victims. Here is one of the photos.

bulimia damage to teeth

The typical pattern we see is illustrated in this photo: complete loss of enamel on the insides of the upper front teeth, causing a yellowing of the teeth. You’ll also notice missing enamel on the upper bicuspids. Also, you can see the incisal edges become more thin translucent and they begin to chip away.

The page emphasizes the different types of damage that can happen to the mouth from bulimia. We know that this situation needs to be handled with great sensitivity to the emotional needs of the patient. Dr. McKay has recognized expertise in this, and has patients fly in from other parts of the country to repair damage from eating disorders.
