White spots or streaks on your teeth can be caused by overexposure to fluoride as a child. This condition is called dental fluorosis and can be treated by your dentist to help reduce the impact on your smile.

  • Dental fluorosis is due to too much fluoride in a child’s dental products or their diet.
  • White spots from dental fluorosis are permanent, but they are not harmful to your oral health.
  • Treatments including tooth whitening, dental bonding and veneers can make white spots less noticeable.
