Enamel is the hard glossy natural protective coating that covers the crown of a tooth. There are no living cells present and it is therefore insensitive. It is translucent so the colour of the tooth is dependent on the colour of the underlying dentine. With the exception of diamond, it is the hardest naturally occurring substance known to man.
