Polish: Orthodontic therapy does not stain teeth. Perhaps there is some residual cement that was inadvertently left on the facialaurfaceof the teeth. See your orthodontist to have it thoroughly removed.

Stain or scar: Braces do not damage teeth. Not cleaning well while braces in place can lead to damage next to the braces. See your family dentist for cleaning to remove surface stain. If tooth enamel damaged your dentist will have to restore the damaged areas.
