In brief: Important

If you are considering having whitening trays after orthodontics, be sure all bracket bonding is removed - tell assistants that you are planning to whiten.
We often see retained bonding from ortho, which is clear until you whiten and then you see "tan lines" in the form of darker spots where existing bonding remained.
