Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ Teeth Straightening
How long do I have to wear the clear aligners?
Most of our customers only have to wear their clear aligners for a period of 9-12 months. Clear Aligners give much faster results than traditional braces. Of course, everyone is different and how fast your smile can transform depends on your teeth and personal goals. This is why we only work with personal treatment plans. After the consultation and analysis of a 3D image of your teeth, our dental specialists will be able to tell you how long you will have to wear your Clear Aligners to get the smile you desire.
Can I sleep with my clear aligners?
Yes, you wear your clear aligners both during the day and night. Clear aligners are an easy and comfortable way to straighten your teeth in a short period of time. During the treatment, you wear your MODmouth Clear Aligners day and night. However, you take them off to eat, drink and brush your teeth.
Do I have to eat with my clear aligners?
No, you do not eat with your clear aligners. This is a great benefit of clear aligners over traditional braces. When you are about to eat, you simply take your clear aligners out. You can put them in your MODmouth case to keep them clean and protected. When you are finished, you can easily put your clear aligners back so they can continue to do the work of improving your smile.
Can I drink with my clear aligners?
It depends on the beverage. You may keep the aligners in only when drinking plain room temperature or cold water. With beverages like fruit juices, sodas, coffee or red wine, we recommend taking your clear aligners out. This makes it easier to keep them clear and clean.
How do I keep my MODmouth Clear Aligners clean?
When you start your personal treatment plan we send you a box with weekly aligner packages. This means you will only wear one set of clear aligners for one week. Clean your aligners with a soft toothbrush and cool water. Do not use toothpaste or any abrasive cleaners. Recommended aligner cleaning aids and disinfectants are available at all MODmouth stores. We also recommend brushing your teeth after every meal before you put your aligners back in.
Can I talk normally with clear aligners?
When you wear MODmouth Clear Aligners you will be able to communicate normally. Some people experience a slight lisp while they are talking. Usually this is part of getting used to wearing the clear aligners, which will improve within the first weeks.
How are MODmouth Clear Aligners made?
The design of MODmouth Aligners is personal and tailor-made from thermoplastic polyurethane in the USA. A certified dentist takes a 3D image of your teeth during a consultation at one of our MODmouth Stores. This professional 3D image will accurately map your teeth so that the clear aligners can be precisely designed and shaped into the perfect, transparent form for you.
Is it painful to get my clear aligners measured?
The MODmouth professional assessment, digital impressions, and wearing of the clear aligners is comfortable and absolutely pain-free. We can assure you that this effective measure to straighten your teeth will be surprisingly easy and comfortable. From the consultation to the 3D image of your teeth to wearing your clear aligners during the treatment plan, the process of straightening your teeth with MODmouth Clear Aligners is simple and comfortable.
Will the clear aligners irritate my gums?
The MODmouth Clear Aligners are precisely molded and designed to suit you. A MODmouth dental professional will take a 3D image of your teeth and gum line and bite that will be the basis of your clear aligners. This means that your clear aligners will have a perfect, comfortable fit and will not irritate your gums. Our dental professionals are always available for any adjustments or polishing of aligners when needed.

Teeth Whitening FAQ
Is a whitening treatment bad for my teeth?
Teeth whitening can be a safe addition to your normal health and beauty routine. However, it should always be performed by a registered dental professional in order to prevent unnecessary risks to your dental health. MODmouth Teeth Whitening treatments are gentle but effective. You can repeat them every 3 months to maintain radiant teeth all year round.
Will my teeth be more sensitive after the whitening treatment?
The MODmouth Whitening Treatment is completely comfortable and causes little to no discomfort or sensitivity and is 100% enamel safe!
Will my teeth look unnatural?
At MODmouth we use a whitening gel that lifts stains and reduces teeth discoloration with its bleaching and exfoliating features. It is a gentle method to lighten the existing color of your teeth by several shades. Before we perform any whitening treatment, our trained dentist will discuss your wishes to determine your aesthetic goals and ensure a natural-looking smile.
Do I have to repeat the teeth whitening treatment?
At MODmouth you can choose a one-time treatment or a “Stay Brilliant” membership. It is possible to whiten your teeth just once when you have a special occasion coming up and you want to look your best. If you would like to maintain a high level of brightness all year round, we recommend repeating the treatment with our Stay Brilliant membership.
How does teeth whitening work?
Over time teeth lose their sparkle and can become more dull, yellow-looking or stained. Professional teeth whitening is an easy and safe way to regain your sparkle and healthy looking smile. During the treatment, our dental expert will apply a whitening stain exfoliation gel. The whitening gel stays on for about 30 minutes while it removes stains and reduces teeth discoloration due to its exfoliating and bleaching qualities. Clients go home with a premium MODmouth at home whiting rinse and serum kit to continue their whitening results.
The result will be a natural-looking, radiant smile. MODmouth Teeth Whitening Treatments are performed by an aesthetic dentist at our Brilliant Bars at one of our convenient locations.
Are all the whitening programs the same?
There are a lot of whitening programs on the market at the moment. At MODmouth we believe teeth whitening should be easy and safe. This is why teeth whitening should always be done by a registered dental professional. Treatments in beauty salons and home kits can be ineffective or carry risks for your dental health. Effective and safe teeth whitening requires expert advice and professional dental care, which we are happy to provide at all our MODmouth locations.
