What to do if you worried about stained teeth after braces? How to fix stained teeth after braces? Wearing braces can be the reason for stains appearing on your teeth. The white spots can be not only under but also around the braces which looks unaesthetic. The situation is better for you if your braces are removable so you can maintain good oral hygiene because bacteria can accumulate under the braces. It’s easy to see those spots. They have different color and texture in comparison with the rest of the tooth. Demineralization causes this issue. It’s the lack of minerals, which were removed, that makes this part of enamel whiter than the surrounding tooth. You can remineralize these places with a paste with fluoride.
