The article presents a study on the factors contributing to variations in incisor enamel thickness conducted to 80 subjects at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry in Richmond. Enamel thickness between mandibular central and lateral incisors, mesial and distal surfaces, male and female subjects, and African-American and white subjects were compared. In effect, calibrated radiography is required, since factors alone do not fully explain variations in thickness.
