Does getting your teeth cleaned by the dentist bad for you as it starts to wear down your teeth after a few years ?

In brief: No

The benefits of getting your teeth cleaned by the dentist outweigh any negative effects, including short-term discomfort.
The accumulation of plaque and calculus happens even to dentists if they don't get their teeth cleaned by another person.
