My dentist advised me Elmex toothpaste and I doubt it after the topic on this forum

My dentist recommended me to start using Elmax toothpaste and I was ready to order it, but came across the following topic Brown and yellow teeth from toothpastes so now I doubt it's a good toothpaste for me. That topic seems to be dead for now, so I decided to start a new one. Sorry, if it doesn't comply with the forum rules.

In the last year and a half it looks like my teeth decided to rebel against me. Last year I had 6 fillings and restoration (against 2-3 filling a year before), this year just started and I already had a surgery on tooth extraction and I have 6 more to take care of (1 more restoration and 5 fillings, four of which should be done for dental neck).

All this time I'm using Sensodyne sensitive according to my dentist's advice. And for the last half of the year it's a real pain - my gums are ok, but with every usage it seems like all my teeth become more and more sensitive, dental necks are aching. So I visited my dentist and he told me that "maybe it's because of the toothpaste I'm feeling this pain and the enamel is weakening though I'm the only one he met with such problems in his life". So he made some investigations and advised me to order Elmex toothpaste (purple one) to take care of the teeth.

But I've read the above mentioned topic that this toothpaste is good if you have problems with gums (I don't) and it causes the teeth to be yellow and brown. My teeth are already yellow and due to the enamel problems I don't want to do whitening. If this toothpaste will make them brown I definitely wouldn't be happy.

Can you advice me any good toothpaste which can make my enamel stronger, avoid more cavities and will not make my teeth darker than they already are? In case it's a no-mint one I'll be happy (but you can't get all you want, right?)

Would be great to hear from Captain Greybeard or Susan57
