Hi. I have been struggling with this my whole life. I have this white stain on my 2 front teeth that disappear once in a while. What is it and what can I do to help clear it?

Usually white stains that appear are as a result of fluorosis- but these will not disappear and reappear. They will be permanent. It could also be caused by by enamel hypoplasia, but again, this condition won't disappear on its. own It is best to diagnose what this is by seeing your dentist so that appropriate treatment can be undertaken
