Different parts of Tooth:
Enamel: It is the outer most parts of Crown portion of tooth. Enamel is the hardest, most mineralized hard tissue in the body.
Dentin: This second layer of the tooth under the Enamel & Cementum of Crown & Root portion. In Dentin one of the important structure in Dentinal Tubule, when it is exposed then tooth causes tooth sensitivity, later can causes pain.
