    As you know, your picture isn't loading.

    Small dots of color on the "wings" of the brackets are there as marks for the orthodontist and assistant. 

    They are there in case the bracket gets out of the dispensing tray they arrive in, the doctor and assistant can tell which is right, left, upper, and lower.

    It's perfectly normal that the color has come off, and not harmful to you.

    No worries, material used for/in braces are safe and tested.
