Danger on Tap:

"Jared Frederickson, a 21-year-old college student from Colorado Springs, has such a severe case of fluorosis that he had cosmetic laminates applied to his front teeth to hide the discoloration when he was in seventh grade.

'My baby teeth had a lot of brown stains, and my adult teeth were worse; they had pits and more brown spots,' Frederickson says. Today, he has so much decay that he bought a supplemental dental insurance policy to pay the expenses that exceed his regular coverage. "
