Children older than 8 years, adolescents, and adults cannot develop dental fluorosis. So, that doesn't sound as if it was OP's issue.

I'm going to answer your private message directly in the public forum.



1- Per the experts at the CDC, fluorosis happens before the age of 8. https://www.cdc.gov/fluoridation/faq...osis/index.htm




2- You have previously stated your grand daughter's spots appeared after the removal of her braces. Perhaps you can keep your stories straight. That's not fluorosis, but dimineralization. A VERY common issue that develops while wearing braces (I actually have a few spots of my own.)



3- Don't attempt keyboard warrior me. I'm done discussing this issue with you.

Yes I agree, I think that white strips are a quick temporary fix if you can't go to the dentist and your teeth aren't very yellow.
