In most cases this is called hypocalcification, bleaching may make it more noticeable if it really bothers you consider having a filling placed over it or drill it our and place a filling, veneer or crown all will work good luck

There are several methods to remove white spots:  1. Intense professional whitening will sometimes work. 2. Acid / abrasive treatment will remove superficial white spots 3. The most reliable is mechanically remove the small spot and build up with composite bonding.. Hope you get the smile you want and deserve.

It can be due to enamel decalcification. There is no guarantee if you use white strips to change the white spot and match it with your tooth shade. There is 2 ways you can remove the white spot from your tooth. Either bonding or veneer.

The white spot can be removed with enamel abrasion procedure.  Whitening may make it more pronounced.
