I'm trying to see if it sounded like my tooth enamel is weak or completely gone. I have transparent tips, yellowing that wasn't there before, slight cupping and white streaks. I domt have dental insurance so is there something I could do at home to prevent further damage or will it progress?

  • Tooth enamel is the hardest part of the tooth but with age it starts wearing. If the tip is yellow in colour it means wearing of enamel is there. it can be because of many reasons. it can be because of some habit like bruxism that is grinding of teeth or it can be because the type of occlusion you have. with out seeing the case clinically it is difficult to comment on this but you can visit your dentist and discuss with him. At home make sure not to bite any thing hard from the front teeth and if you are in the habit of grinding the teeth then you have to wear the night guard.
