If significant amounts of enamel are worn away from the body of the tooth, the slightly yellow dentine layer underneath can become more visible.
2. Dull or Discoloured
As the enamel wears away, our teeth may lose their shine, making them appear dull.
3. Translucent or See-Through
As more enamel wears away, tips of teeth, particularly front teeth can appear translucent.
As the protective enamel wears away, the underlying dentine layer can become exposed. This can result in tooth sensitivity.
5. Rounded Edges
The edges of your teeth are the most exposed to acid erosion.
Fortunately, it’s easy to take action to reduce these risks. It is important to check your diet, protect and strengthen your teeth, and help reduce the effects of acid erosion. To find out more, read our section on how to protect against acid erosion.
