Straightening teeth with braces is a great way to improve the look, feel, and health of your smile. They can also be a fun accessory!

You can customize the colors of the bands around your braces’ brackets at your orthodontic checkups. These are functional bands that put gentle pressure on the archwire, which gradually moves your teeth. But they can also compliment your personality and style!

Here is how you can personalize your braces to make your orthodontic treatment more fun:

  1. Stay Monochromatic
  2. Choose your favorite color, a color that compliments your complexion, or a color that you wear most often so that you braces will match your outfits.

  3. Go for a Theme
  4. A color theme can be coordinated with a holiday or sports season. Go patriotic with red, white, and blue bands. Represent your favorite college or pro sports team, or be true to your school with your school colors! Your boldness can add a little bit of flair to the braces experience!

  5. Consider Contrast
  6. Do you want your braces to be less noticeable? Or do you want your teeth to appear as white as possible? Lighter colors will stand out less because they are more similar to the natural shade of your teeth. While choosing a bold, contrasting color can emphasize your bright, white smile.

If your child gets bored of their colored bands or regrets the color they chose, they can swap the bands out at their next appointment!
