What Does This Tooth Shape Mean!? (Mamelons Explained)

Curious why your front teeth looked chipped?  Well, they might not be chipped -- but instead they might be mamleons!  Let's talk! About 90% of people have mamelons (tiny tooth ridges) on the biting edges of their top front four and bottom front four teeth. They’re totally normal and usually start to wear out the older we get. Teeth that don’t bite together correctly may have mamelons that last longer or don’t go away. But if they pose a major cosmetic issue, you can have them removed by your dentist in a short, comfortable tooth recontouring procedure. There’s nothing wrong with your teeth; the fact that you have mamelons helps incisor teeth erupt correctly.
