There are now contemporary, metal-free approaches to straightening crooked teeth. Custom invisible braces that are worn over teeth are now available in Pearland. When you smile, nobody will know that your teeth are gently being corrected.
The protective enamel that covers the softer interior is made of minerals. Enamel demineralizes (loses some of its density) when coming in contact with acids. Saliva can dilute and neutralize acid so the tooth can remineralize (re-harden). This process isn’t instantaneous, however. While the enamel is soft, the tooth is vulnerable to losing a microscopic outer layer of enamel. If the erosion continues, the much softer dentin is exposed. Eventually, the tooth may need to be extracted.
