You might have heard in your science class that the strongest substance in your body is the tooth enamel. Your tooth enamel plays a vital role in your overall dental health. The tooth enamel is the translucent covering that serves as the shield protecting the tooth’s soft and sensitive part, which is the dentin. With this, you wouldn’t feel pain when your teeth interact with hot or cold temperatures. Besides protecting the dentin, you also use tooth enamel in your day to day activities such as chewing, biting, and grinding your food.
