#9 – My aligners are stained!

orthodontics at home

Your clear aligners and attachments can stain and it’s recommended not to eat or drink the certain foods that cause staining if you care about the cosmetic appearance.

Some foods and drinks include:

  • Wine
  • Coffee
  • Tomato sauce
  • Curry
  • Foods high in food colouring

While eating your aligners should be removed and both your teeth and aligners should be cleaned afterwards, before the aligners are reinserted. This will help prevent your aligners from becoming stained, however the attachments can stain and become more noticeable.

The staining of the attachments is solely up to the foods and drinks you choose to consume.
