Your teeth have a special anatomy that allows them to help you chew and speak while smiling confidently due to their beautiful appearance. They are composed of three main parts: the enamel, dentin, and pulp. The enamel is the hard-outer layer, which is visible as the surface of the tooth. While it is vital to protecting the inner layers from damage, it is also responsible for the color of your teeth. Over time, it can become thinner, causing your teeth to yellow as the dentin becomes exposed. Not to mention, it can also stain, leading to a dull, discolored smile. Thankfully, your dentist in Farmington can restore it with a whitening treatment.
