Highlights: • Demineralization of enamel and dentin is caused by chemical processes • Polyphosphate is a natural inorganic polymer which can be fabricated biomimetically into novel amorphous microparticles • Amorphous polyphosphate particles are morphogenetically active in vitro and in vivo • These polyphosphate particles restore damaged enamel and dentin • Dentifrice, supplemented with polyphosphate particles, sustainably solidifies enamel and dentin
