Dental fluorosis is a condition where teeth is hypomineralized due to ingestion of high concentrations of fluoride during tooth formation.

Fluorosis of teeth may appear as:
• Teeth with white spots or flecks on the surface (mild)
• Yellowish or brown discoloration on the surface of teeth (moderate)
• Pitted or brown lesions on the teeth that may look like cavities (severe)

Dental fluorosis may occur due to
• Ingestion of toothpaste during childhood
• Drinking water with high fluoride concentration
• Consumption of fluoridated food products
Mild fluorosis- teeth whitening is suitable to improve the appearance of teeth
Moderate and fluorosis- veneers can help restore teeth to provide better aesthetics

After 25 years of trying to find a good dentist in KL have finally found one that is well equiped, knowledgable, skilled and good value. Lovely staff. The only downside is the parking but if you park ay MainPlace and walk across then it’s easy. Update 2022…I am still using this excellent dentist as they remain the best I have experienced over the past 26 years… Dentists, nurses, reception and equipment all top notch… Highly recommended.
