Why you have white marks on your teeth

Why you have white marks on your teeth

Although painless and harmless, dental fluorosis can be unpleasant as it is sometimes rather unsightly. The condition causes white lines or spots on the teeth and affects one in four American citizens. The good news for sufferers who are afraid to smile through embarrassment is that dental fluorosis is easily treatable by your dentist. The condition is caused by a mineral deficiency in the tooth enamel which is caused by excessive fluoride from various sources:

– Added fluoride in drinking water

– Toothpaste

– Mouth rinse

Fluoride is recommended to combat tooth decay but as a recent article points out “too much fluoride is just as bad as not enough” so it would be wise to limit your intake. Further information can be found at:


Dr. Abhishck Kabra

Dr. Kabra has taken over the practice from Mr. Rob Bell, who is semi-retired and continues to work at the practice part-time.

Mr. Bell describes Dr. Kabra as: "a highly qualified dentist… who is likeable and friendly and I hope you will see him with the reassurance that I thoroughly recommend him."

Dr. Kabra qualified from a prestigious dental school in India, and was subsequently recruited to the UK as a dentist. He soon developed an interest in restorative & cosmetic dentistry and subsequently went on to complete a Restorative Diploma, with the respected Royal College of Surgeons. He is also an accredited trainer of newly qualified dentists. He has expertise in utilizing invisible braces to straighten teeth. He also has experience in implant dentistry and can help with snoring and sleep apnoea.

Dr. Kabra says: "I am delighted to offer a broad range of bespoke private treatments, ranging from private general dental care to orthodontics (braces to straighten teeth), dental implants (to replace missing teeth), and facial aesthetics (wrinkle relaxation & dermal fillers)".

"I look forward to meeting each of you personally in the near future and hope to continue a lasting relationship of providing you a lifetime of good oral health."
