Treatment for this dental condition includes removal of the very soft enamel and placement of a white tooth-colored filling in that area.
Occasionally, the aberration or deviation from normal growth in the enamel is extensive enough that we recommend a white stainless steel cap as a temporary crown during the growing years.
Maintain proper oral hygiene of the child by wiping the teeth with a soft cloth or a very soft brush.
