How to Reharden and Strengthen Enamel

Enamel protects the inner layers of your teeth from dietary acids, helping to keep them healthy and white. Once enamel wears away, it’s gone. However, it is possible to repair and strengthen weakened enamel to protect your teeth from future erosion.

Strengthening Enamel: Remineralization

Enamel can wear away for a variety of reasons, but the most common is erosion caused by acids in your diet. These acids attack your enamel, wearing away the minerals that keep it strong. This weakens enamel over time, but before it’s completely worn away, enamel can be repaired. This process is called remineralization.

Remineralization occurs when vital minerals—like calcium—bond to the teeth to fill in the weakened areas of enamel.

These minerals need to be present in saliva to facilitate the process. You can get many of these minerals from the foods you eat, such as cheese and other dairy products, fiber-rich fruits and vegetables, or poultry and seafood.

However, modern diets are highly acidic, and your teeth may need some extra help to promote remineralization.
