Question Dead spots on bus bar

Dead spots on bus bar in breaker box, where previously those slots worked. I believe the result of a short circuit, since remedied. I even changed the main's fuses. Any suggestions? Why are there these "dead spots" and how can I fix this?

Well, I'm not sure. Have you put in brand new breakers since the short circuit? Are the breakers the exact manufacturer and model specified by the panel manufacturer? Are there scortch marks on the bus? When the old circuit shorted, did the previous breaker perform properly?

Thank you for your reply. Those were all very good questions. But before I finished figuring out the answers to those, I found the circuit tripped to the box in the basement that leads to our apartment. Viola' !
Thanks again.
