Things you should know about tooth wear Newington, CT
enamelerosion, dentist

Enamel is  the hard protective covering of the tooth that protects the underlying dentine layer. The enamel gets eroded or worn out when exposed to acidic chemicals such as acidic food and drinks, leading to sensitivity.  You will be able to identify erosion by the structural differences. Tooth surfaces and edges  will appear as worn out spots. The exposed dentine will appear as darker yellow shade compared to the milky white enamel of the rest of the teeth.

Cause of dental erosion

The main cause of dental erosion is frequent exposure to acidic substances, like acidic food. The acidity softens the tooth structure and destroys the mineral content. The saliva replenishes the natural balance, but if your teeth are exposed to too much acid, the saliva is unable to repair the damage, and pieces of enamel get washed away. Over time, the enamel portion of the tooth gets gradually wiped out. It can also happen due to ageing.
