Using whitening treatments to make the color of fluorosis-stained teeth more uniform.
The brown and chalky-white blemishes found on this young man's teeth are typical of a type of tooth staining termed fluorosis.
If that is the case here, the staining has been caused by the excessive ingestion of fluoride during that time frame during which his teeth were forming (when this person was just a young child).
Dental issues and concerns:
- What's most needed for these teeth is an improvement in color uniformity. People who view our teeth are less attune to their exact color than their color uniformity.
- While the shape and alignment of this person's teeth isn't perfect, it is reasonable.
- This picture seems to suggest that the health of this person's teeth is reasonably good. Nothing suggests that there is an underlying need for the placement of extensive dental restorations.
