Is it OK to try to get whiter teeth while I have braces?

So I have terrible teeth. Really yellow. I DEFINITELY DON'T SMOKE (just putting that out there) and RARELY drink coffee or sodas. Recently, my self confidence has been REALLY low because of how imperfect my teeth are. I was planning on just using baking soda tooth paste for a long time, but then i thought, "If I get my teeth whiter while I have braces on, will there be a yellow spot when I take them off?" So the real question is: Should I wait to take my braces off to get my teeth whiter, or will it not make a difference? also, if I did start to whiten it now and there was a spot when I got my braces off, would I be able to brush that spot away or will it forever be a different shade?

Thanks for the help! :)

    NO! cuz if your teeth are whiter than they were when you got them put on then youll have these dark squares on your teeth!

    No! You will have ugly spots on your teeth that are really hard to remove! Get a whitening treatment and toothpaste and what not after you get your braces off.

    I have braces to and I use crest whitening toothpaste. I don't think it matters. And if that does happen you can get rid of it by getting this special stuff from the dentist.
