Teeth with worn enamel

The Physical Signs of enamel erosion

Enamel erosion is a growing concern in clinical practice today, with 46% of young adults already showing signs of enamel erosion.1

Enamel erosion is a form of tooth wear caused by acid weakening the surface of tooth enamel.

Acidic foods and drinks like fruit, soda, orange juice and wine feature prominently in diets today. These demineralize and weaken the tooth enamel, making it more susceptible to physical damage, even by brushing.2
