Cape Town's water is flouridated as far as I am aware, so it is not usually necessary to give your little toddler any extra flouride. Excess flouride may cause some changes on the colour of teeth but this is usually white spots, not a yellow colour. A yellow colour may be caused by plaque or by certain supplements especially iron eg Vidaylin with Iron. There have been occasional reports of children's teeth having developed a yellow colour after certain antibiotics such as amoxycillin and amoxycillin/clavulanate.Brush your little girl's teeth with a toothpaste containing bicarbonate of soda [you will need to use an adult toothpaste for this] Stop the flouride and also any extra vitamins and iron if she is indeed taking them. If her teeth do not improve with brushing it would be a good idea to consult a dentist.
