ABSTRACT
The article reports on the results of research conducted in an effort to characterize the two types of opaque dental enamel as to histologic structure, density and nitrogen content and to compare research findings with data on sound dental enamel. Researchers found that there is not only an alteration in structure but also an increase in the inorganic material in both types of opaque dental enamel and that opaque dental enamel has a higher nitrogen content than sound enamel.
