Enamel erosion is a progressive condition that may have a lifetime effect on patients1

Over time, enamel erosion can lead to cosmetic changes and dentin hypersensitivity which may become a significant concern for your patients:1–3

  • Change in appearance, e.g. yellowing from thinning and increased translucency2,3
