Resolving enamel defects

Resolving one of abovementioned enamel defects during an industrial manufacturing process requires a structured three steps approach.

Step I
Identify the right defect.
This may sound silly, but it is sometimes not easy to determine what is the exact defect. Incorrect identification will lead to the wrong causes & remedies.

Step II
Evaluate possible causes.
Focus your attention on the most logical ones first.

Step III
Implement appropriate remedies.

Due to the relative complex nature of enameling processes, it might not be easy to resolve an enamel defect.
