Whitening tray: You may consider whitening your teeth, but be careful to use hydrogen peroxide, not carbamide peroxide (urea peroxide) as urea peroxide causes some gum inflammation.

Fluorosis treatment: Flurosis usually leads to a mottled appearance to the teeth but they tend to be more impervious to decay. Esthetically this can be corrected on the teeth that show when smiling by use of veneers.

Fluorosis: I am assuming you mean the esthetic treatment to mask the discoloration. Besides lowering the amount of Fluoride you are exposed to and treating any weakened tooth, there are multiple options depending on severity and location. Bonding, veneers or if needed even crowns if there is a lot of damaged tooth. Even bleaching may help blend. I would see a trained cosmetic dentist for your options.
