Why Do I Have White Spots on My Teeth?

If teeth were exposed to too much fluoride when they were developing, they may have white spots or streaks. This condition is known as dental fluorosis.

Key takeaways:

  •  Children under six should never use mouth rinses with added fluoride.
  • Professional teeth whitening can help to minimise the appearance of dental fluorosis.
  • Dental veneers and other cosmetic options can be used to tooth colour.

Your dentist can discuss appropriate fluoride levels for children and cosmetic options for adults too.
