Hello,

Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer.

The answer to that is no.

The calcium content of our teeth is predecieded and no amount of ingestion of calcium, injections of calcium or surgery can increase it.

What cosmetic procedures can do, is alter the look of the enamel by adding am artifical layer on it.

If you tell me more about why you need to increase the calcium content of your teeth, i can give you a more detailed answer.

Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information.

Regards,
Dr. Behere.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
