Why is Enamel so Important For Your Oral Health?
Tooth enamel is the visible, outermost covering of your teeth. Enamel is translucent, giving teeth their sparkle, and depending on its thickness, it shows through the colour of the underlying dentine which varies from light yellow to a grey or blue-like white. It’s the hardest substance in the human body and contains a high percentage of minerals.
Even though enamel is a strong substance, once enamel erodes or gets damaged, it cannot be regenerated – so it’s important to protect it. Knowing how to preserve your tooth enamel from erosion and decay begins with an understanding of what enamel is, how it gets damaged, and the steps you can take on a daily basis to protect it.
