Cheap quality plastic braces stain easily and have brought a bad reputation to plastic clear braces. Go with reputed brands and you shouldn’t have major problems with staining. Invisalign are the best in plastic braces. They are trays designed for each person separately and are removable which are both an advantage and a disadvantage. You can remove while eating and so it does not stain. But, you can also forget to put it back in which is a big disadvantage to your treatment process.

This is where the advantage of fixed braces comes in.
