• The outer layer and a protective shield for your tooth.
• The hardest substance found in the body.
• 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.
Although enamel is very hard it can be attacked by acids from our diet. Enamel erosion occurs when these acids, including those in a normal healthy diet, attack the outer layer (the enamel) of teeth, making it softer and weaker so that it can be worn away. If this process is left unchecked it will steadily progress and eventually lead to the loss of tooth enamel. At that stage nothing can be done because the body cannot rebuild it.
Diagnosing enamel erosion requires a detailed examination by a dental health professional. For professional advice, diagnosis and to learn more about factors that can increase the risk of enamel erosion make sure you visit your dentist regularly.
A number of factors can contribute to enamel erosion, including:
• Frequent consumption of food and drinks with a high acid content.
• Brushing teeth immediately after consuming acidic foods or drinks.
No. Enamel does not contain any living tissue, so the body cannot replace it once it is lost.
Enamel is the outer protective layer of the tooth and is also responsible for tooth appearance. Enamel erosion can lead to dental health problems.
Everyone regardless of their age, is at risk of tooth erosion due to daily consumption of acidic food and drinks. In addition, some people are particularly at risk including those who suffer from certain eating disorders.
Yes. Children are also at risk of enamel erosion. Research has shown that everybody at any age can suffer from enamel erosion, since its onset is linked to dietary habits and the frequent daily consumption of acidic food and drinks.
The REGENERATE Enamel Science™ Advanced Toothpaste can be used by children of all ages in line with the general recommendation for the use of fluoride toothpastes. Children of 6 years and younger should use a pea-sized amount and minimize swallowing. If your children are taking supplements containing fluoride or you live in a region where there is fluoridated water we recommend you consult a dentist or doctor before using REGENERATE Enamel Science™ Advanced Toothpaste.
The Boosting Serum system has been designed to be used by adults. Therefore we would not recommend use under the age of 14 because of the adult-size mouth shield provided. The forming of the mouth shield in hot water is not suitable for children.
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".
The initial stages of erosion are invisible to the naked eye.
For professional advice, diagnosis and to learn more about factors that can increase the risk of erosion, make sure you visit your dentist regularly. Effective management of dental erosion is largely dependent on a thorough understanding of its causes and early diagnosis by professionals.
The NR-5™ is a unique and internationally patented technology present only in REGENERATE Enamel Science™.
NR-5™ is based on two minerals called Calcium Silicate and Sodium Phosphate that combine to form fresh Hydroxyapatite - the core enamel mineral.
Inspired by the scientific findings of bone repair with Hydroxyapatite it took scientists over 9 years of research in Port Sunlight, Milan and Shanghai to develop this world-first technology.
The NR-5™ technology has been developed over 9 years of international research. A series of scientific studies has been carried out and the results of these studies showed that the NR-5™ technology reverses the early invisible signs of enamel erosion.

No. REGENERATE Enamel Science™ Advanced Toothpaste provides all the benefits of a regular toothpaste plus the benefits unique to NR-5™
The scientists who developed REGENERATE Enamel Science™ created a toothpaste with no added water and a dense texture to optimize the regenerate activity of the toothpaste so to provide its full benefit. This results in a unique sensation when brushing, which may feel different to brushing with regular toothpaste.
The REGENERATE Enamel Science™ Boosting Serum enhances the Advanced Toothpaste’s regeneration power, even in interdental spaces.
The exclusive Boosting Serum increases the effectiveness of the Advanced Toothpaste by 43% as shown by a 3-day in-vitro test measuring enamel micro-hardness.
The NR-5™ Serum tube contains the NR-5™ ingredients and the Activator gel is needed to unleash regenerating power of NR-5™.
Yes. The NR-5™ Serum and Activator gel need to be mixed to unleash regenerating power of NR-5™.
The NR-5™ Technology is ready to use when the NR-5™Serum and the Activator gel mixture has a even colour.
The Boosting Serum is designed to be used each month for three consecutive days or as recommended by your dentist.

Those with hereditary or systemic diseases affecting enamel should consult their dentist for specific advice.
• Risk of enamel erosion increases with frequency of acid exposure. To avoid enamel erosion consider reducing the frequency of consumption of acidic food and drinks.
• Rinse your mouth with a glass of water after consuming acidic foods and drinks - this helps to re-establish the natural pH of your mouth and reduce the risk of acid erosion.
• Avoid brushing teeth with a hard toothbrush and do not brush immediately after consuming acidic foods or drinks.
• Have regular dental checks and talk to a dentist about any concern.
