Enamel refers to the outer surface of the tooth. It is the hardest structure in the human body but it only covers about a third of the tooth you see in the mouth. The rest of the tooth is dentin which is the inside layer and then there’s the nerve and the pulp. The problem is your body cannot make any more enamel. Once your enamel is formed that’s all you get.

One of the ways to remineralize enamel structure is using toothpaste containing remineralizing agents like Flouride, Hydroxyapatite, calcium sucrose phosphate, etc.

Here are some toothpastes which help strengthen the enamel:

How does the active ingredient help with enamel remineralization?

Flouride (sodium Flouride, stannous fluoride, amine fluoride):
Flouride acts by forming a protective layer known as fluorapatite over the enamel surface.
Amine fluoride: It is more effective than other types of fluoride because it releases more fluoride and also prevents bacteria from sticking to the enamel surface.
Hydroxyapatite: This is calcium phosphate which is a safer and more effective alternative to fluoride.
It forms a layer over enamel that doesn’t dissolve easily and thus protects enamel against erosion
Also, it prevents bacteria from sticking onto the enamel surface, thus acting as an anti-cavity agent.
Vitamin E: Saliva forms a protective layer over the enamel known as the enamel pellicle(made of certain proteins).
Vitamin E enters this pellicle and modifies it to be erosion resistant.
This prevents erosion of enamel by acids in the diet.
Calcium sucrose phosphate and calcium gluconate:
These present in two of the above-mentioned toothpaste provides calcium and phosphate which helps remineralize weakened areas of enamel and strengthen it.

Which are natural or organic toothpaste options and how are they effective for enamel protection?

In the above-mentioned list, Bentodent and Biomed toothpaste are natural options.
Bentodent contains bentonite clay while Biomed contains hydroxyapatite, calcium along with other natural ingredients.
The manufacturer claims Bentonite clay forms a protective layer over enamel and prevents enamel erosion. More research is required to validate these claims.

Do these toothpaste help people with enamel hyperplasia or other enamel-related conditions?

Conditions affecting the enamel-like hypoplasia, fluorosis, and other pigmentation on enamel by birth need to be treated by a dental professional and cannot be solved by toothpaste usage.
This toothpaste can just help prevent further damage to enamel from happening upto some extent

We mentioned above, enamel cannot be rebuilt, so toothpaste cannot compensate for the damage caused. Enamel erosion or cavities once formed cannot be reversed. The above-listed toothpaste plays the role of remineralizing agents and can only prevent cavities or erosion from affecting the enamel to some extent.
