The enamel on your teeth can be compared to the paint on your car – both are a thin protective layer and both have the tough job of protecting what’s underneath. You wouldn’t scrub the paint on your car with a brush three times a day for fear of damaging the thin protective layer of paint. Why would your scrub your teeth three times a day with a brush?
Enamel is the hard mineralized coating that surrounds the tooth. When you excessively brush your teeth, you are also brushing away at the enamel. Any damage to this protective layer makes the teeth look yellow and old. Now that’s certainly something you would want to avoid. Unfortunately, most people think the harder they brush, their teeth become cleaner, but this really isn’t true. Brushing too much can do more damage than good.
