See your dentist: Hyper fluorosis stains can be shallow or deep. Both stains are treated differently. We have had luck reducing these stains with a product called mi paste. Deeper stains have been removed with a technique called microabrasion. If all else fails, you can cover the stain with a composite filling or a veneer. Consult your dentist and he will give you your options based on severity of stain.

MI paste: You can get cosmetic restorations to cover your stains but we all know that can be expensive. Bleaching may help but that doesn't do the job evenly. There is a toothpaste call mi paste that you can ask your dentist about. Try that.

See dentist: Stannous Fluoride has been shown to cause superficial staining of teeth in some, but not all people. Your dentist can polish this off easily. Stannous Fluoride is antibacterial, that is why it is used. New toothpastes that contain stannous fluoride, such as crest pro health have addition ingredients that prevent this staining.
