By Noah Webster.
A hard thin translucent layer of calcified substance which envelops and protects the dentin of the crown of the tooth. It is the hardest substance in the body and is almost entirely composed of calcium salts. Under the microscope, it is composed of thin rods (enamel prisms) held together by cementing substance, and surrounded by an enamel sheath. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p286)

A substance imperfectly vitrified; a substance of the nature of glass, rendered opaque by an admixture of oxides of metals with a flux; that which is enamelled; a smooth glossy surface of various colours, resembling enamel; the smooth hard substance which covers the crown or visible part of a tooth.

The substance which covers the coronae of the teeth. The enamel is of a milky white colour, and sufficiently hard to strike fire with steel. Its surface is very smooth and polished, and it forms a thicker layer towards the part where the teeth come in contact, and becomes thinner towards the cervix. The fibres of the enamel are perpendicular to the surface of the teeth, on the ivory of which they seem, as it were, planted. This gives them a velvety appearance, when examined by the microscope. The enamel has no blood vessels, and is not renewed when removed. It is formed of phosphate of lime, and a very small portion of animal matter. A delicate membrane covers the enamel- cuticle of the enamel, Nasmythâ€™s membrane; but no closely united with it, that it can be demonstrated only by the use of chlorohydric acid.
