What Can I Do About Enamel Appearance Changes After Invisalign Attachments Were Removed?

When removing my attachments, my ortho didn’t use magnification. After, the teeth appeared dry/dull/gashed/scratched. My lateral incisor was flat and lost its natural grooves/texture. I went to 2 dentists for polishing. They regained some shine, but it’s a cloudy/dull/opaque shine. The other teeth have a thicker, less translucent look. I am using MI Paste Plus to re-mineralize. What can I do to improve the appearance? What happened? Would calcium peroxide products (like Nu Radiance Forte) restore calcium?

I think the tincture of time is best.  It seems you have done all you can.  With normal use these teeth will often start to blend in with the rest.
