Repairing Tooth Enamel
Dental Enamel Hypoplasia: I am currently being evaluated for celiac disease and the term dental-enamel hypoplasia came up. I am 32 years old.
After the birth of my first child four years ago, I have had severe yellowing of my teeth along with vertical cracks in the enamel of my front teeth. Would this constitute dental-enamel hypoplasia? What kind of dentist should I seek to evaluate and repair the cracks? ...Visitor from IL
Enamel Hypoplasia is a condition that develops when the cells (ameloblasts) that form the hard white outer coating of the tooth (Enamel) weere affected by some illnes or trauma to the body, during the development of enamel.
This results in white or brown marks and/or deformed enamel. While this enamel tends to be cavity (caries) resistant, it may present a cosmetic concern. A cosmetic dentist or a general dentist who has a good esthetic eye and lab should be able to help.
