Q.

Water damaged teeth

Please help, my husband comes from the rural areas of mpumalanga and most people in that area have " chocolate like tinted teeth"  he says its the water in the area.
Is this reverseble at all? He has been to a dentist who used a white substance to cover his teeth but that substance kept getting chipped until it was all gone and he was back to his normal self

The condition is know as fluorosis. Unfortunately it is not reversible.
The bst solution is to crown/veneer the teeth
