Not part of their normal treatment. Also, best time is after treatment, as part of the tooth is covered with the bracket during treatment. You do need a good cleaning before braces are placed.

Bleaching should be done after braces removed so that bleaching material can reach entire tooth surface. An orthodontic specialist will limit practice to orthodontics exclusively, asking the generalist to do tooth whitening. Ask your orthodontist for best sequencing advice.
