It's definite and universal to all. Going to a dentist costs big time. From just having a simple check-up to getting surgical treatments for cracked teeth and damaged gums. 

Aside from the extravagant expenditure a trip to the dentist's clinic entails, some people are just irrationally and plainly terrified with the thought of having to widely open their mouth and getting their teeth swept away with dental instruments. This may seem funny and absurd for some, but this phobia is scientifically and medically existent. 

Well, for those who aren't convinced with the standard every-6-months appointment with the dental docs, here is a hint of bright light for you. 

Kazue Yamagishi of Japan, led the way for the discovery of a toothpaste called Charcle, capable of hastily filling unwanted holes in teeth as well as embarrassing dental cracks. 

The toothpaste is basically black in color and comes with a unique ingredient causing the mixture to crystalize 3 minutes after its application.  In addition to its ingenuity, the toothpaste is able to restore enamel in the teeth. 

Tooth enamel is one of the four major tissues that make up the tooth in humans and many other animals, including some species of fish. It makes up the normally visible part of the tooth, covering the crown. It is a very hard, white to off-white, highly mineralised substance that acts as a barrier to protect the tooth but can become susceptible to degradation, especially by acids from food and drink.

The toothpaste basically attaches to the natural enamel of teeth thereby making the structure more durable and fortified able to withstand crunchy and hard edibles. 

Charcle is now being commercialized in Japan and in some parts of the world.
