ENAMEL EROSION Expand Questions
What is enamel? Expand Answer

Enamel is:

  • The outer layer and a protective shield for your tooth.
  • The hardest substance found in the body – half as scratch resistant as a diamond.
  • Made up of minerals, and doesn’t contain any living tissue. This is why the body cannot regenerate it once it is lost.
  • Important for a healthy beautiful smile.
What is enamel erosion? Expand Answer

Enamel erosion occurs when acids, including those in a normal healthy diet, attack the outer layer (the enamel) of teeth, making it softer and weaker. Signs of enamel erosion can be:
1. CRACKING
If tooth erosion continues into the advanced stage, the edges of the teeth can start to crack and have a rough feeling.
2. YELLOWING
Teeth can become yellower as
a consequence of enamel thinning because the underlying dentine becomes more visible.
3. TRANSPARENCY
It is not uncommon in the early stages of tooth erosion for the teeth to have a sand blasted look or for the tips of the front teeth to look transparent.
4. GROOVING
In the advanced stages, microscopic indentations arise on the surface of the teeth.
5. SENSITIVITY
As a consequence of the loss of enamel, the underlying dentine can become exposed. This can result in feeling sharp twinges, discomfort or pain

Dental expert Prof David W Bartlett, King’s College London, tells us: “For most people tooth wear is a slow process which is part of the ageing process. But in extreme cases the erosion of tooth enamel can lead to more serious complications such as complete destruction of the tooth and in rare cases tooth extraction”.

REGENERATE Enamel Science™ Expand Questions
How does REGENERATE Enamel Science™ work? Expand Answer

The NR-5™ technology in REGENERATE Enamel Science™ mimics the effect of bio-mineralisation to reverse the early invisible stages of enamel erosion.

  • As the ingredients combine, fresh enamel mineral is formed which wraps and integrates onto teeth.
  • The mineral which is formed is called hydroxyapatite – and is exactly the same mineral from which tooth enamel is made.
