Remineralizing Toothpaste for Enamel Repair

Did you know that minerals play a significant role in dental hygiene? Tooth enamel is the most highly mineralized substance in the body, but when bacteria in the mouth forms plaque on the teeth it can lead to demineralization. When plaque interacts with deposits left on the teeth from sugary or starchy foods, it produces an acid that breaks down enamel, leaving teeth weak and susceptible to decay.

The saliva in your mouth contains minerals that naturally strengthen teeth by cleansing them of harmful bacteria, but additional support from a mineral-rich toothpaste can assist with enamel restoration. (This is especially helpful for those who suffer from dry mouth.) Here’s a closer look at the minerals found in the Dr. Brite Whitening Mineral Toothpaste and how they keep your pearly whites healthy! 

Mineral Toothpaste Ingredients

  • Hydrated silica is a derivative of silica (silicon dioxide), an abundant compound that forms about 12% of the earth’s surface. It serves as a mild abrasive that helps safely remove plaque from the teeth with brushing.
  • Calcium carbonate is a common substance found in rocks such as chalk, limestone and marble. It enhances the process of mineral-rebuilding in the tooth, gently polishes away surface stains and has a hardening effect on enamel.
  • Kaolin clay, also known as China clay, is rich in aluminum and is high in calcium, silica, zinc and magnesium. It helps whiten teeth and balances pH levels in the mouth. 

Another important ingredient in our toothpaste formula is Xylitol. Though it’s not a mineral, Xylitol prevents demineralization by reducing the amount of plaque. Find out more about Xylitol

Be aware of demineralization warning signs such as tooth sensitivity and discoloration, and avoid tooth decay by following good oral care habits. Remember to floss and brush twice a day and rinse after meals. Make sure to visit the dentist regularly and eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. 


1. Does remineralization restore enamel?

Dentin is protected from dietary acids by enamel, which helps keep teeth white and healthy. Enamel cannot be repaired after it has been worn away. A process called remineralization can be used to repair and strengthen eroded enamel and protect your teeth from further erosion.

2. Can toothpaste really repair tooth enamel?

The process of remineralization of teeth can be facilitated by the use of toothpaste and mouthwash. During remineralization, minerals, particularly calcium, are reintroduced to the teeth. Minerals adhere to the teeth's surface and attach themselves to weak spots in the enamel.

3. Does Toothpaste remineralize enamel?

Remineralizing toothpaste can strengthen your teeth, but it cannot repair cavities or regrow enamel. To remineralize tooth enamel, dentists recommend fluoride-containing toothpastes, provided that there is enough of it left to work with.

4. What is the difference between demineralization and remineralization?

HA crystals in hard tissues like enamel, dentin, cementum, and bone can be depleted of minerals by demineralization. HA crystals are remineralized by replenishing their mineral ions.

5. Do Remineralizing toothpastes work?

Remineralizing toothpaste can help to reduce thinning enamel. You can purchase remineralizing toothpaste over-the-counter or on prescription. Most of these toothpastes contain fluoride, which strengthens your enamel.

6. How long does it take for dental enamel to remineralize?

It typically takes three to four months for the remineralization process to start working. But as soon as you start strengthening your enamel, you might notice stronger teeth, less sensitivity, and even a whiter grin.

7. What is the quickest method for regenerating tooth enamel?

Implement fluoride treatments. When tooth enamel experiences typical wear and tear, fluoride is its best buddy, helping to strengthen and restore it. Using a fluoride-based toothpaste and mouthwash is the ideal technique to apply fluoride treatment while trying to repair tooth enamel.

8. How do teeth seem after the enamel has been lost?

The teeth may appear yellow as more dentin is shown as the enamel wears away. Chips and cracks As enamel erodes, the edges of teeth become more uneven, rough, and jagged. An indication of mineral loss is the smooth, shining surfaces of the teeth.

9. What symptoms indicate that your teeth are remineralizing?

Your can see if your teeth are being remineralized by observing their appearance and if they are returning to normal or to how it was before the injury. You might no longer experience teeth sensitivity or pain when consuming hot or cold meals or beverages.
