Hi docs, would I have stains on my teeth from my braces or can this be prevented?

In brief: Preventable

Braces don't scar teeth, neglect does.
If you don't clean well next to the braces your teeth can become permanently scarred (not temporarily stained). If you eat damaging foods, partially dislodge braces, and bacteria get behind braces cavities can form. See a qualified orthodontic specialist, follow instructions to the letter (don't cheat), and you'll be just fine.
