Enamel Erosion

Enamel erosion occurs when the hard, outer layer of the teeth is worn away by acids. Because this layer of teeth is both protective and cosmetic, erosion can have a profound impact on the health and beauty of your smile. Significant erosion will lead to a yellowing of the teeth as dentin becomes exposed. It will also increase risks for tooth decay, infection, and sensitivity.

How Often Should I Visit the Dentist?

The American Dental Association recommends adults and children alike visit the dentist every six months for cleanings and examinations. These visits serve a multitude of purposes, not the least of which is allowing Garner dentist Dr. Adam Moore to thoroughly examine your teeth and gums for signs of disease and decay. When detected early on, most oral health issues can be dealt with swiftly and noninvasively.
