Braces are a common treatment for straightening teeth and giving you that perfect smile. So many people wear braces today, so it’s no big deal. In fact, even adults wear braces. Your braces journey is often filled with decisions. There are however fun decisions to be made, such as what type of braces you want and if you want coloured bands! As a part of your treatment with Ethos, you get to choose what styles and colours suit you. This is the perfect time to think about your personal style and the overall look you want to achieve. If you already have braces or are in the process of getting them on, it’s time to colour your smile!
If you have braces, and want to stand out from the crowd, it’s time to colour your smile!
Functional and aesthetic braces colour options
The o-ring in braces is used to attach the archwire to the metal or ceramic brackets on the teeth. The colour comes in via rubber bands which are placed around the brackets. Coloured bands and o-rings are used for both aesthetic and functional purposes as the bands support the archwire’s attachment to the brackets on the teeth.
Colourful braces your way
Braces don’t have to be boring and plain. You can create your own colour scheme, or even use a different colour for each tooth. Each time you get your braces adjusted, you can change your colours. How fun is that!
If you’re a colourful dresser you might want something bright and noticeable like rainbow bands! Or, if you are wanting more of an understated look, you might choose to stick to the neutral white bands so that your braces blend in. The important thing is to choose something that you are most comfortable with.
Design your own braces colour scheme
Braces don’t have to be boring and plain. You can create your own colour scheme, even using a different colour for each tooth. Each time you get your braces adjusted, you can change your colours, meaning you will never be bored.
Below are some of the amazing colours you can choose from when you next visit your orthodontist. Make sure you ask to see the colour chart when you visit Ethos Orthodontics, as computer screens can distort the colours.
With fun colours such as ‘screaming pink’, ‘extreme green’ and ‘plum crazy’, you can be as creative as you want. If you want more toned-down colours, we also have plenty of options including ‘light blue’, ‘dusky blue’ and ‘smoke’. Change your colours with the seasons, or maybe you want to match your braces with your hair. Talk to the Dental Assistant at your next fitting about how you’d like to customise your smile!
