Abstract The diagnosis and treatment of a patient with excessive and rapid erosion of enamel is presented. Although the Center for Disease Control and the dental literature have reported on dental enamel erosion resulting from swimming pool chlorination, the awareness of such etiology among dental professionals may be limited. Common findings in these reports include cold sensitivity, a distinctive appearance resembling laminate veneer preparations of the facial surfaces of anterior teeth, occurrence of diastemas, and at times, a rough or gritty texture of the remaining tooth structure. Clinical presentations of erosive lesions can be diagnosed and the best course of treatment determined. Copyright © 2011 The Editorial Council of the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry.
