I've had Damon clears on my upper 10 for almost 10 months now and have absolutely NO staining at all. Not on the brackets and not on the glue. Ligs aren't necessary with self-ligating braces so I don't have to worry about them. I haven't avoided eating any foods during my tenure with braces either. I do have good dental hygiene habits though.
So jealous. I cannot get rid of the glue stain. I floss and brush multiple times a day. I don't have ligs either. Do you drink coffee?
I AM JEALOUS TOO. I drink coffee and green tea and mine were stained within days. I hated it, looked like my teeth were dirty, now with powerchains for last year least I can't see the stain but I know its there under this. Thank gosh I am almost done though, I am sooooo sick of thinking about staining foods, I want to have mustard and curry and more curry and red sauces and just not think.....hmmmmm will this stain my braces?
I would suggest to anyone getting braces INCASE to not have coffee a couple hours after like I did LOL maybe it was not cured yet
