    i have braces and on the upper part of my front tooth there is like a really small matte dot and I am wondering if this could be enamel erosion or could it be glue from the braces, it’s only noticeable when the tooth is dry, the dot doesn’t shine it’s like a little matte dot. The rest of the tooth is shiny and no wear on the edges of the tooth, any help would be highly appreciated

    Most likely bit of leftover glue. Next time you see your dentist or orthodontist, just ask them to buff it for you.
