Perhaps a simple tooth whitening will make the spots blend into your enamel.

It's common. A few seconds on the web turned this up:

You haven't told us the reason for the white spots. The treatment depends on why the white spots are there.

Talk to your dentist. My son had white spots on his bicuspids when his braces were removed due to hypocalcification. The solution was a resin treatment, which is not inexpensive, but when cured the resin blended the hypoplasia into the undamaged tooth enamel, making the spots undetectable.

A common causes of white spots on teeth, including dental fluorosis, enamel hypoplasia, plaque accumulation, poor dental hygiene, sleeping with your mouth open and eating too many acidic or sugary foods.

To treat this you have to consult a dental hygienist. They can suggest some suitable treatment options depend on the underlying cause of the white spots and the condition of your teeth. Some of the possible treatments are enamel microabrasion, teeth whitening or bleaching, dental veneers.

Last year I had little white spots on my teeth too so I tried using the strips but they didn't work, and my teeth hurt really bad. I went to my dentist instead and they got rid of them, weird! I thought that the strips were suppose to be just as good as the dentist but as I looked into it more I guess not. I found this article that explained why.

Could be fluorosis, too much fluoride on the teeth. I had heard a commentary on the radio not long ago about children 3-6 with fluorosis, they are getting too much fluoride, instead of a pea size amount they are putting toothpaste on the whole brush and doing this all the time. I'm not a fan of fluoride in any form...No fluorosis here, or white spots etc. And too so many drinking fluoridated water....it accumulates.

Whitening strips are not a substitute for a dentist. They only do one thing: bleach the surface of your teeth temporarily. They don't actually change the tooth itself.
