The best way to extend the life of your teeth is by brushing with a toothpaste that restores tooth density. Acids in everyday foods can soften and thin enamel leaving teeth with damage that can last forever. A toothpaste with density repairing qualities can remineralize enamel, which hardens teeth, so they are more resilient to subsequent challenges. Everybody's teeth lose density over time, so find out if a density rebuilding toothpaste may be right for you.
Enamel is the thin outer covering of the tooth. This tough shell is the hardest tissue in the human body. Enamel helps protect your teeth from daily use such as chewing, biting, crunching, and grinding. Although enamel is a hard protector of teeth, it can chip and crack. This can lead to tooth decay and other tooth issues. Enamel can also erode over time. Acids in everyday foods can soften and thin enamel causing teeth to be more susceptible to cavities or tooth decay. When the tooth decay enters the hard enamel, it has entry to the main body of the tooth.
Your tooth enamel is made from a dense matrix of microscopic minerals. As you go about your day, acidic foods and beverages you consume such as coffee, tea, and soft drinks, can gradually erode valuable tooth enamel minerals and structural density.
If you are lax with your daily oral hygiene routine, or you don't brush with a toothpaste that includes densifying qualities like added fluoride, the enamel density of your teeth will naturally erode. As this starts to happen, it can leave your teeth at an increased risk of suffering from cavities and tooth sensitivity problems.
Like bones, your teeth lose density over time, which can lead to decay and even tooth loss. That is why Crest - the number one toothpaste brand in America - has launched its biggest innovation in years, Crest Densify. It's a first-of-its-kind toothpaste, that actively rebuilds tooth density by re-mineralizing enamel every time you brush to extend the life of your teeth.
How Does It Work?
Crest Densify helps strengthen teeth by re-hardening enamel (remineralization) for stronger, healthier teeth. It also protects teeth by preventing future decay (demineralization) by creating 24-hour density protection against density loss, with brushing twice a day. Crest Densify is a simple switch to ensure you keep your smile healthy and strong for years and years to come.

Fewer than 1 in 5 millennials rank density and enamel protection as the top benefit they look for when selecting a toothpaste, but more than half are worried about losing their teeth as they age - ahead of going gray, getting wrinkles, or even gaining weight. That is why Crest is looking to help people invest in the wellness of their teeth, and that begins with the right toothpaste and routine. Crest Densify uses a new premium formula to offer a trusted defense against early tooth decay and features the same trusted active ingredient in many other Crest products, stannous fluoride.
Everybody experiences density loss. It's inevitable. Luckily everybody can rebuild that density and strengthen teeth with new Crest Densify.
Top 5 Tooth Tips for Maintaining Strong Tooth Enamel
Limit Sugary Foods and Drinks
Bacteria in your mouth feed on sugar from foods and drinks. Then they make acids, which soften and wear away your enamel.
Eat Foods That Protect Enamel
Calcium in food counters acids in your mouth that cause decay. It also helps keep your bones and teeth strong.
You can wear down your enamel if you brush too fast and hard.
The American Dental Association (ADA) calls fluoride "nature's cavity fighter" because it strengthens your enamel and helps repair the early stages of tooth decay.
Get Regular Checkups
To keep your teeth strong, see your dentist every 6 months for a checkup and cleaning.
