Here’s a cool new technology that could radically change cosmetic oral products. It is a tooth patch film that coats individual teeth, preventing decay and making the them appear more white.
The film is made from a flexible and hard material derived from hydroxyapatite, the main mineral in tooth enamel.
It appears promising but there is a significant drawback at the moment. It takes a whole day to get the film to adhere properly to the teeth.
No doubt this could be improved upon and within the next 5 years, this could be a new cosmetic dental treatment that will change the way cosmetic formulators make oral care products.
