See your dentist: Enamel serves to keep the dentin safe from daily use like chewing, biting, crunching and grinding. When enamel damaged, the tooth is more susceptible to cavities. There are variety of options to fix lost enamel: for small erosion bonding is used. If the enamel loss is significant, full crown maybe a solution.

Why enamel is seen in the ground section only while dentin is seen in ground and decalcified section?
Yes it can: The chewing surface of front teeth can become chipped, worn or damaged as the result of excessive wear, malocclusion, para functional habits, bruxism (grinding), bulimia, erosion, chemical food damage (lemons, limes, etc) and other reasons. These things can expose dentin. Front teeth are extremely important for proper function. See your dentist to evaluate & determine an appropriate treatment plan.See 1 more doctor answer

PH dependent: Carious lesion progression can vary depending on the ph (acid) duration in the mouth. If the mouth stays acidic for long periods of time and does not have a chance to neutralize beneficially, the cavity can progress rapidly. Saliva flow also is a factor, as is the amount of food (bioflim) present. Http://www. Agd. Org/public/oralhealthfacts/files/pdfgenerator. Aspx? Pdf=fs_toothdecay.

I want to know that many researches are claiming that natural tooth will regrow in the future with dentin and enamel. I want to know that is this true?
Possible: The future holds mysteries and excitement. Stem cell research is controversial and questionable. The reality from a dental standpoint is, if you have cavities, do not wait! We may never see this research come to fruition in our lifetime.! we can only live in the present and accept the gifts of the future.See 1 more doctor answer
Exposed dentin: Dentin is the layer of the tooth that is under the enamal. If the exposed dentin is on the cervical aspect of the tooth (the neck of the tooth at the gumline), it can often be bonded with a tooth-colored filling material. If the exposed dentin is on the chewing surface of the tooth, the tooth may need a crown.See 1 more doctor answer
Serveral asnwers: It can be from trauma (chipping of the enamel) to wear of the enamel over it, to recession exposing root surface (which has no enamel but a very thin layer of cementum which is easily abraded).

I had direct pulp cap place on a couple of teeth over year a go and I have not had any issues. What is the likely hood that the dentin would not grow?
