Tooth Enamel Restoration in Fort Lauderdale

Do you have questions about how you may be able to restore tooth enamel that has been damaged? Tooth Enamel is the hardest substance in the human body and needs to be taken care of in order to ensure proper dental hygiene. It covers the tooth crown, has a glossy appearance and varies in thickness over the different surfaces of the tooth. Enamel is often thickest on the cusp and thinnest along the border of the tooth. The existing minerals contained in the enamel constitute for its strength but also attribute to its brittleness.

Reshaping can be done for a number of different reasons, such as:

  • To alter the position of your teeth
  • To fix overlapping teeth
  • To alter the length/height
  • To alter the overall shape

The common purpose of enamel removal or shaping is to gain access to the underlining decay held within the dentin and/or the overall elimination of the inflammation within a particular tooth. Yet, the process of enamel removal can be done before decay is present within the tooth. Removal is also necessary when fitting crowns or veneers. This is incorporated within these procedures to insure that the appearance of each tooth is enhanced to its full capacity.
