i know this is a mad question but, i was wondering, if there is such a thing as enamel which can be painted on teeth- a bit like correction fluid!
my teeth are a bit yellow, i have had them whitened but they develop massive sensitivity as the enamels a bit thin-- so was just wondering if there is any paint on enamel which would strengthen teeth and make them whiter simultaneously?
if not , could someone please hurry up and invent some--!!!!
Hey I saw your post. I'm in the dental field. It is very common to have sensativity when bleaching your teeth. You should use a fluoride rinse when you are done and try to use it for less time. The peroxide in the bleach opens up the microtubules that go to your nerves which causes the pain. The fluoride will "fill'in the holes. There is no tooth paint. You can only bond them with a composite type material or get veneers. I would try again. You can also get a different strength. Good luck
Ha! Funny bc dentists wil always claim, nope, gotta buy crowns/veneers/etc. Or get your teeth whitened, etc. I just knew there was some paint out there that was non toxic -- makes no sense that there WOULDN'T be, but I knew not to ask a dentist this. Same way I know not to tell a doc/derm I am doing my own low percentage peel (clutch pearls!) I mean, it's not as if I haven't mixed my own hair dye, put it on my own eyebrows, with success mind you. If you can do that and follow instructions, you can do a peel (within reason, low percentage, etc.) I just laugh and smh when I see docs chime in with horror when people ask if they can apply their own twelve percent glycolic peel. "But you'll blind yourself and scar yourself!" They all cry. Kinda insulting right?
