New Synthetic Tooth Enamel Is Harder and Stronger Than Real

The artificial tooth enamel (ATE) was produced using AIP-coated hydroxyapatite nanowires. This allowed the engineered structures to have an atomic, nanoscale, and microscale organization like natural enamel.

Breakthrough Regenerates Enamel, May End Tooth Decay

Researchers have developed a mineralized material that mimics the fortified structure of enamel. The protein-based substance could be used to prevent and treat tooth decay, as well as tooth sensitivity and pain.
