Gone are the days of ordinary silver braces. Today’s kids can show off their personal style with colorful bands.
Braces colors are offered in single or multiple colors. Some kids opt to wear their favorite color. Others choose colors that show off school spirit or pay allegiance to a favorite sports team. Some choices are even based on holiday colors such as black and orange for Halloween or red and green during the Christmas holidays.
Color choices do not have to be permanent. Patients who change their minds about their original decisions can simply ask for new band colors while at their regular orthodontist appointments.
There is a big difference in wearing braces before and after colored bands. Before they were available many young patients were self conscious about their braces. Now, with colorful choice kids are excited at the idea of choosing how their braces look making most kids more comfortable with wearing them.
