07 Jul How drinking water and excess toothpaste can cause dental fluorosis

People with dental fluorosis suffer from painless but unpleasant white stains and lines on the teeth which can reduce the radiance of your smile.

Key takeaways:

– The white or brown spots in dental fluorosis appear when you use things with excess fluoride.

– It can only develop in children after the baby teeth have fallen out and permanent ones are coming in.

– Your dentist can restore your smile by masking or whitening to even crowns and veneers.

Avoid drinking water with excess fluoride and use just enough toothpaste on your children.
