Enamel hypoplasia is a development defect that can cause significant deformities to the primary and adult teeth, such as missing physical tooth structures, pits, grooves, or missing areas of the crown. When hypomineralization occurs, it causes a drastic decrease in the tooth’s mineral content of the enamel. In some cases, this can cause a tooth to have a translucent appearance while also leading to soft enamel. Both enamel hypoplasia and hypomineralization lead to serious dental problems, as well as cosmetic issues. Amherst Dental Group provides the specialized care you need.
