Is It possible Traces of the Brackets to Remain after Treatment

Can people still see traces of the brackets on my teeth after treatment?

They can’t see traces of the bracket but there may be traces of the resin.  This is the adhesive material used to bond the bracket to the tooth. After the brace has been removed we will polish the teeth to smooth away anything and you are recommended to have some hygiene appointments to clean everything up.  If after this there is still a small trace of resin this can be removed using an electric toothbrush or with an additional polishing session.  If however, whilst wearing the brace you were not cleaning your teeth properly and you were consuming a lot of fizzy drinks it is possible that you will have damaged the enamel around the bracket and then yes, you could see a trace on there.
