Repairing Tooth Enamel


Question:
I have scraped some enamel off two of my teeth. Not the whole tooth but the upper part and the exposed root.

Is there any product that can regenerate the enamel? ...Visitor from Canada

Answer:
Tooth enamel does not regenerate. There are, however, professional grade products and supplements available through your dentist to fortify weak or compromised enamel.

Common examples of "enamel resurfacing" include the use of veneers, crowns and porcelain overlays.

It appears you have an occlusal or orthodontic abnormality associated with those teeth. Occlusal dynamics should be corrected before seeking enamel replacements, otherwise unusual wear and tear events may continue.
