Need dentist help: I'm very sorry to hear that you hate your teeth. This may be an excellent time to get together with a dentist who performs cosmetic dentistry. Since you already have a good habit of home care (i want to see you floss, too, though), you may be an excellent candidate to receive a life-changing cosmetic dentistry. Please see a dentist, and i'd love to hear that you love your teeth someday!

Excellent answer! White spots are usually from enamel decalcification related to poor oral hygiene and plaque buildup, or fluorosis from excessive systemic fluoride during tooth development. It doesn't sound like either is or will be a problem in your description.
