Your Guildford Orthodontics team can offer a range of colours to customize and personalize the braces you'll be living with for the next couple of years.
Braces involve many parts, including the brackets, archway, metal bands (o-rings for back teeth) and elastics or bands made of rubber that go around each bracket.
If you've chosen translucent cosmetic braces (and brackets), or have opted for Invisalign® to keep your dental treatment as invisible as possible, you’re probably not looking to add color to your mouth though.
On the other hand, if you’re getting traditional steel braces, your brackets and wires will be silver.
It’s the tiny elastics (or bands) that allow you to colorize your mouth! Because these elastics get changed during your orthodontic visits every 4 to 6 weeks, you don’t have to settle for just one color through your entire treatment. You can switch colors each visit!
And some orthodontists will allow you to choose different colors of elastics for each tooth from a color wheel. The Happy Tooth even provides an online color selector for braces so you can test out your look virtually first, print it out and bring it with you to your next visit.
Although there is no official style guide for braces, consider these suggestions when choosing your colours. Here are some tips:
