The article discusses a study on cases of mottled enamel in Italy. Evidence is presented which shows that the water supply in the city of Resina, Italy is a chief cause of tooth staining. Water which comes from volcanic sources is a significant cause of enamel staining and discoloration. Many people in Resina showed significant changes in tooth coloration after changing their water sources.
