Abstract

Enamel is the most visible tissue of the tooth. It gives the tooth its whiteness, its brilliance and is the main focus of our attention from an esthetic point of view. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to see alterations in this enamel, whether they are simple localized discolored spots, or more extensive loss of tooth substance. The etiologies, then, are multiple: toxicity during the mineralization of the bud, hyperthermia or a genetic abnormality. As professionals, making an etiological diagnosis and reassuring the parents is a challenge that we must address on a daily basis.
