I have a kid I did the flouride with who has white teeth and no apparent issues (the older one) and then I have the younger one who has all the adult teeth coming in yellow. Same diet (and nothing there that could cause yellow teeth anyway), same dental hygiene, but I didn't do the flouride. I'm getting tempted to do it and a little worried about tooth health without it.
I had lots of fluoride growing up (toothpaste, frequent treatments, not in our water though), and my teeth have always had a yellowish tint. I kind of think it has more to do with genetics. I also suspect (but have nothing to back this up) that yellowish teeth are stronger/less cavity-prone than super white teeth...
