Enamel

Enamel is the hardest substance found in the human body and is made of calicifed tissue. The enamel's hardness is important because the enamel is a covering that protects the softer dentin material of the tooth. Enamel is a translucent material and ranges in color from white, yellow and yellow gray. Generally speaking, the most common dental problem that afflicts the enamel is tooth decay. Tooth decay occurs when a certain bacteria (found in plaque) interacts with sugar and a tooth's surface. To prevent this decay, a dentist will often use a sealant to lock out this interaction between plaque and sugar.
