  • Google "white spots on teeth" and you'll find lots of info on it. It's caused by a lot of different things.

  • I think one is cavities. If it's up along the gum line I think that's what it is. It starts out as a white spot and then turns into a cavity. Another thing is dental fluorosis. Babies are NOT supposed to have fluoride because fluoride causes this. Go to to get more info on that. I have dental fluorosis. :(

  • I had a very high fever as a baby and that is what my doctor says accounts for mine.
