Want to Rock Your Smile? Choose Braces Colors That Match Your Style
Since you’ll probably be in braces for a while, why not have some fun with them? If you choose traditional metal braces, you can choose elastic bands in colors such as red, blue, green, purple, yellow, pink, orange, gray, silver and black. These bands get changed every four to six weeks, so you can switch braces colors at each visit! Make braces in fun colors part of your personal style.
Which Color Braces Should I Choose?
Which color braces you choose can depend on lots of things. In general, you’ll want to avoid rubber bands in colors such as:
- Black–black elastics can resemble rotting food or teeth.
- White and yellow–elastics in white or yellow can make teeth look more yellowed.
- Green or brown—elastics in green or brown can resemble food caught in your teeth.
Those are just guidelines. Feel free to experiment with a color you wear often, your school colors, the colors of your favorite sports team or a color to match the holidays, such as red, white and blue in the summer, or glow-in-the-dark bands for Halloween.
