Just because you wear braces, doesn’t mean you have to be boring. Actually decorating your mouth with your favorite colors can be fun and take some of the stress out of wearing braces. An exciting part about wearing braces is being able to choose the colors of your rubber bands. During your treatment, the Orthodontist will place elastic bands over each bracket to secure the archwire. You have the option of choosing the color of your elastics, so mix it up to your hearts desire.
It is very common to pick different colors each month to express your creativity and coordinate your braces with your outfits. Now if your not that brave or bold, you can take the subtle route and pick options that blend in with the brackets such as gray, silver, or even clear. Remember bright colors make your teeth look whiter, while lighter shades, such as yellow and white, may cause your teeth to appear less bright.
A common question that is asked is, can you have all the colors of the rainbow over your teeth? the answer is YES! You can also have alternating colors, such as school colors, sports team colors, or even holiday colors.
So what does your rubber band colors say about you?
