I have developed these white spots on my front teeth. Will I be able to use teeth whitening to even out my tooth color?
Those spots are decalcification spots, and are a pre-cursor to decay. Using teeth whitening will not even out your teeth. It will only make the discoloration more obvious.
What you’ll need to do is get the decalcification treated. Then when the teeth are healthy, if you’re still interested in getting them whitened, that will be the time.
Your dentist will likely want to do some extra care on your teeth and do some fluoride treatments. I wouldn’t put off getting this looked at. The next step will be decay on your teeth.
