Fluorosis is a condition resulting from the intake of excessive amounts of fluoride early in life. Typically occurring between the ages of one and eight – a time when adult teeth are forming – fluorosis causes permanent teeth to appear ribboned or freckled. This can detract from the quality of the smile, especially when this mottled appearance is on front teeth.

Fluorosis occurs underneath the enamel and does not respond well to teeth whitening. In fact, whitening teeth with fluorosis can enhance the discoloration by lightening the enamel surrounding it. This makes completely covering teeth impacted by fluorosis the most effective solution.

To learn about treatment options for fluorosis in the Fresno area, call cosmetic dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake at (559) 478-2235 and schedule a consultation today

Fresno cosmetic dentist Dr. Gregory Miyake offers a number of options that can be effective at treating fluorosis. These include:

All of these treatments are used to cover the surface of teeth and can be shaded and shaped to match adjacent teeth impeccably. However, not each of these solutions is right for every tooth and, in some cases, a combination of these and other cosmetic dentistry treatments may be needed to fully perfect your smile. The best way to determine if this is the case in your situation is through a teeth whitening consultation at our comfortable Fresno office.
