In brief: Very Common

Dental Fluorosis is very common and is caused by ingesting excessive fluoride during enamel formation.
is a normal condition and only poses a cosmetic concern which can be remedied with teeth whitening, porcelain restorations or microabrasion.

In brief: Pretty Common

Most communities in major metropolitan areas fluoridate their water, a good thing.
But unknowing parents sometimes supplement childrens diet with Fluoride vitamins. Too much Fluoride in the developing child can produce mottling of the teeth producing a chalky white appearance.

In brief: Growing trend.

With more and more people promoting Fluoride as the solution for cavities people are getting overdosed with fluoride.
It's in the water and foods we drink and all dentists push the product causing more and more dental fluorosis. That's why the ada has lowered their recommendations.

In brief: Fluorosis

Dental fluorosis although not rampant generally speaking, still occurs as isolated events.
I usually suggest checking with your local water bureau to find out the parts per million of Fluoride in your community if you have a concern.
