Tooth enamel is hard as diamonds

After diamondstooth enamel is the second hardest compound in the world.

The hardest substance in the body is tooth enamel, your teeth’s natural defence system. The only naturally occurring substance harder than tooth enamel is diamond. Tooth enamel is the hard white substance covering the crown of a tooth.

Unfortunately, tooth enamel can wear away over time. 

Acids also temporarily soften your tooth every time you eat or drink, making it vulnerable. Luckily, your saliva contains compounds that re-strengthen tooth enamel soon after this occurs. However, all mouth components work together, and therefore you need regular check-ups to make sure that everything is functioning correctly.

Not only does tooth enamel protect your teeth, but it also controls how temperature is sensed in the internal nerve of each tooth.
