Too Much Fluoride Can Cause White Spots on Teeth

A common cause of white marks on your child’s teeth is consuming too much fluoride:

– This can happen in areas where the drinking water is treated with fluoride or from regularly swallowing toothpaste.

– Your dentist can discuss options for restoring the teeth, including whitening and veneers.

– White spots on children’s teeth can be prevented by good oral hygiene and being careful with fluoride.

“If a person notices that the white spots on their teeth are changing in size or number, or they are starting to have tooth pain, they should see their dentist.”
