Your teeth are comprised of three layers. The hard outer layer you see when you look in the mirror is your enamel, which protects the softer dentin and pulp underneath it. It is the hardest substance in your body; however, it isn’t indestructible. Unlike your bones or tissues, your enamel can’t regenerate itself. Once it is gone, it won’t grow back.
