Do you have brown or white spots on your teeth? Has this discoloration been part of your smile your whole life? You may have fluorosis, a discoloration of teeth during dental develop. Before permanent teeth ever erupt from the gums, they absorb fluoride and other nutrients in order to build strong, healthy dental structures. Most teeth are fully formed by the time a patient reaches the age of 8. If kids are over exposed to fluoride before teeth have fully developed, discoloration on the surface of teeth, fluorosis, occurs as a result. At Premier Family Dental, we offer multiple treatment options to reverse fluorosis discoloration.
