How many people wish they had beautiful smiles? I know that I do. I’ve always been a bit self conscious about my smile. When I was in high school, I had braces and I never wanted to smile because it would show off all that metal. Even after the braces were gone, I was self conscious because my teeth weren’t white like the models on TV. I didn’t take care of my teeth that well. At that time, I smoked and drank a lot soda. Both of those things damaged the enamel. I was provided with this fun kit to play with.
How Healthy Tooth Enamel Makes Beautiful Smiles
Your tooth enamel is sort of like the shell on an egg. It protects the softer portion of your tooth. Enamel is semi-translucent but over time, it gets stained by what we eat and drink (and smoke). Acids from the food we eat wear away the enamel on our teeth which means that the exposed part underneath becomes more vulnerable to damage.
When enamel isn’t taken care of, it becomes rough and more susceptible to damage. When you visit the dentist and have your teeth polished, it helps smooth out your enamel. You can help maintain that smoothness in between visits by using Colgate Enamel Health toothpaste. Colgate Enamel Health toothpaste replenishes natural calcium and gently polishes so germs are less likely to stick, for strong, healthy enamel.
Check out this demonstration to understand why:
The cornmeal slides off the smooth wax paper but sticks to the rough sandpaper. When your tooth enamel is smooth, germs and bacteria are less likely to stick to it. Acid softened enamel is rough. Healthy enamel is smooth.
Colgate Enamel Health products hit store shelves this September (now!). Check your grocery store, mass retailers and drug stores today.
