All that warm sunshine means it’s time to shed the winter layers and dark colors and opt for fun outfits, flip flops, and bright colors. Summer necessitates a wardrobe refresh, but did you know it’s also a great time to refresh your braces? Here’s how to make your braces part of your style.

So Many Options

Years ago, there were only a handful of color options for the colored bands that attach the wires to the brackets of your braces. Thankfully the days of limited color options are a thing of the past and most orthodontists are now able to offer a wide variety of different color options, from neon to primary colors and light shades to bright. This means that you have almost limitless options to style your braces.

Finding Your Braces Style

Finding your braces style can feel complicated at first, but it’s really simple and lots of fun once you get started. If you’ve only chosen clear before, deciding to refresh your braces for the summer might look like choosing bands to match your favorite color shirt or your favorite pair of flip flop sandals. Sticking with colors you know you love to wear is always a solid choice.

If you’re feeling more adventurous, you could try a mix of colors that coordinate with your favorite color. Picking colors on opposite sides of the color wheel can really make the colors pop.

The great thing about getting to choose different colors each time you get an adjustment to your braces is that you’re not stuck with the same color throughout the life of your braces! So don’t be afraid to experiment and have some fun with bold, new color combos.
