could you please help me with the following rejection?
We found the overall composition of this file's lighting could be improved. Some of the technical aspects that can all limit the usefulness of a file are:
I've corrected levels and vibrance a little and corrected file is here:
Do you think I can resubmit the photo and could be accepted? Or any opinion how to make it better?
Thanks a lot in advance!

It looks a little underexposed. If you're trying to shoot on a white background, it generally looks better if you create some space between the subject and the background to allow you to use another light to light the background only and blow it out. Also the light source here on the top of the hand is very yellow, but the underside is much more pink / magenta. I think it would help a lot if you could balance that out more.
Finally, image hygiene is important - that large hair in the background is definitely not something that most clients buying an image of a dental brace will want in their image.

Agree with Kelvin. Your adjusted version is much improved over the rejected one and may be borderline acceptable as-is but the mixed lighting temperatures (looks like daylight plus tungsten?) reduces the professionalism on a subject where most buyers are probably looking for clean clinical perfection. If you can reshoot instead of just trying to fix in post, and aim to get it closer in-camera, it will certainly prove to be a beneficial learning exercise (in addition to yielding a better image!)

May I suggest that you rethink the composition a bit. Currently this is a photo of a hand and there happens to be a dental device present. Or is it a photo of a dental device with a hand present? The point of view of the camera produces this confusion.
Perhaps a slighly different angle and a framing which emphasises the device would make it stronger.

Thank you all for advices, I will reshoot.
