Hello, I had braces for 5 years and got brown spots on my two front teeth at 14. I am 23 now and still have them. How do I get rid of them?

In brief: Stain or Decay

Brown spots on the teeth are either stains or decayed area.
Stains can be polished away of whitened. Decayed area can be taken care of either by placing a tooth color filling, bonding or veneer depending on the extend of the decayed area.

In brief: Brown spots

Caused by not effectively cleaning area between braces and gum line/decalcification.
Will not go away by themselves. See your Family Dentist for bleaching, fillings, veneers, or other cosmetic treatments.
