Dentistry/Tooth Porosity? Etching?

Question
How can I make my teeth more porous so they can be receptive of tooth mousse? I am trying to get rid of white spots on my teeth caused by flurosis but I read the teeth need to be "Etched" first, how can I naturally etch my teeth??

Answer
you should not be trying to etch your own teeth. that would be damaging to the enamel. you need to talk with your dentist about what to do for your teeth. do not try to do this on your own. etching is something only a dentist can do properly and safely and is usually only done to place a restoration. call your dentist please!
