Fluorosis?

My 11mo daughter had "perfect perfect perfect" teeth (according to the dentist), but after just one fluoride treatment, now her teeth have white spots! She is still mostly BF, some solids here and there, and we brush religiously. I didn't think that one treatment could have this kind of impact! I remember having white spots like that on my teeth for most of my childhood, which stopped after fluoride treatments did. I want advice on whether I should continue fluoride treatment--our water is fluoridated, and she gets watered down juice to help with constipation. Sorry this is all over the place, I just don't know what to do! The only change to happen before the white spots on her teeth was the fluoride treatment.
