Braces: What Colours Are Available and How Can You Choose?

At our dental office in Orlando, FL 32809, we offer a variety of colours you can pick from if you obtain braces. Each time your dentist tightens your braces, you will have the opportunity to choose new colours for your bands.

How Can I Choose?

Keep the following factors in mind when you are choosing what band colours to switch to during your next appointment at our dental clinic near you.

1. Complement your skin tone

For darker skin tones, we suggest bold jewel tones like sapphire blue, ruby red, and emerald green. Patients with fair skin might prefer cooler colours. Also, take note of your hair and eye colour. If your eyes are a striking blue, why not choose bands colours that match them? Brown or green eyes? Try violet!

2. Colour correct your teeth

Particular band colours can brighten the look of your smile. For example, darker band colours can result in whiter looking teeth. On the other hand, white and yellow shades can cause your teeth to look duller or like they have stains. Additionally, you may want to avoid brown bands as they can be mistaken for wedged food particles… which you wouldn’t want!

3. Highlight your favourite colour

If your favourite colour is orange, why not choose that band colour? Love pink? We offer a few different shades! This principle applies to all colours! You can think of band colours for your braces in Orlando, FL 32809 as, a form of self-expression.

4. Celebrate the season

There is no cooler way to ring in the season with fun band colours. Every season or holiday, you can spice up your look with exciting band colours to match. Christmas? Red and green! Summer? Ocean blue or mint green! The fun only continues. Not to mention, you can tie in your ligature colour to a special event.

5. Metallicize

Matte is fashionable, but that doesn’t mean it should exclude you from sparkling elsewhere—yes, we mean with your braces near you. Gold, glittery silver, and metallic colour options are a great way to make your smile shine, that extra bit.

6. Prepare for game day

Sports fans of all genders can enjoy alternating team colours. Flaunt your team spirit when you smile with fresh new band colours for your braces.

What about adult options?

Do you know, 1 in 5 adults wear braces near you? When it comes to choosing a band colour for adults, most don’t consider it a time for self-expression and instead like to keep it subtle. Adults may be fond of pale greys or silver that match with their metal brackets. While clear elastics may seem like the ideal option, it doesn’t take much to stain them, so perhaps steer clear!
