Beak wear question

Mushka has started chewing a lot lately. No other behavioral changes, her poop looks good, good appetite. She isn't acting lethargic and she is not beak shy at all, I have checked her beak thoroughly and there are no visible injuries or injuries I can feel. But she has been wearing her beak down faster than normal the last couple of days. As far as routine nothing has changed, and no diet changes. The only thing I can think of is she got a new wood chew toy she likes a lot. I am curious if this could be an early indicator of other issues. I would rather not take her to the vet in this weather, and I don't want the stress on her if I can avoid it. Any advice on what I should keep an eye on or should I go ahead and get her to the vet for a checkup? I am including some pics so you can see her beak.







Thanks in advance!
