What Is Fluorosis?

Fluorosis is a defect in tooth enamel that results from excessive exposure to fluoride mostly during childhood. Ingesting too much fluoride while permanent teeth are developing underneath the gums can lead to white, yellow, or brown spots that are especially difficult to remove later on in life.

Although fluorosis doesn’t affect the function of teeth, it certainly impacts their appearance, and some brands of whitening treatments simply don’t have the strength to address these more stubborn stains.

What Are the Treatment Options for Fluorosis?
