Do you work hard to keep your teeth healthy and strong? This includes brushing for two minutes at a time twice a day and flossing at least once a day. You probably know that if you don’t care for your teeth as well as you could, your enamel could suffer. But did you know that there are a number of things you could do to keep your enamel strong, and several ways you can recognize weakened enamel?

The first sign you can watch for is yellowing teeth. You see, once your enamel is stripped away, your dentin—which is the soft layer beneath your enamel—becomes exposed. Fortunately, you can usually prevent this issue by caring for your teeth well, which includes brushing and flossing regularly.

Similarly, you can watch for teeth that look transparent. If you notice this issue, your enamel could have developed improperly. This can be a genetic issue, typically indicating weak or thin enamel. Unfortunately, either of these issues can be fairly serious. If you notice these problem, please visit our team for personalized advice.

Finally, please remember to look for rounded teeth and cracks in your smile. You see, rounded teeth are actually a sign of enamel erosion, and cracked teeth can be an indicator of advanced erosion.
