Use Colors on Your Braces to Reveal Your Personality and Style

You’ll be wearing braces for a little while, so why not have some fun with them? Braces colors come in a wide variety in order to personalize your smile. So how do braces get their color and which color should you ideally choose?

Braces with Colors

Braces consist of several parts including the braces (brackets), the wires that run through the brackets and the colors that surround each individual bracket to hold the wire into place.  Some braces have a gate that hold the wire in place and they don’t require the colors but they can be placed as decoration.

Since the elastics change every 4-8 weeks, you can choose your colors every time you visit Drs Gorton and Schmohl.

What Braces Colors Should You Choose?

Your orthodontists Dr. Jasmine Gorton and Dr. Bill Schmohl have an extensive braces color selection. Here’s a guideline on which colors to choose:

  • Darker colors make teeth look whiter.
  • Certain colors complement or match the color of your eyes.
  • Choose colors that work to complement the color of the clothes you typically wear.
  • Wear the colors of your favorite sports team or school colors.
  • Get festive by wearing colors that coordinate with upcoming holidays
  • At Halloween, choose glow-in-the-dark bands for a festive, spooky vibe.

WildSmiles are high quality stainless steel braces with shaped bases (the part which attaches to your tooth). Drs Gorton & Schmohl provide the WildSmiles option to our younger patients if they need braces on their upper four front teeth as part of their Phase 1 intervention treatment. We always have Stars and Hearts in our office and Soccer Balls, Footballs, Flowers and Super-Diamonds are also available on request.

You can see what different combinations of shapes look like (you can mix and match!) and design your own smile: Click here to GET WILD! When the braces you have chosen are placed, you have the same color selection as regular braces (although sometimes the shapes show up better when you pick a clear color).

There is no fee difference in our office if you choose WildSmiles over traditional rectangular braces. We want to make sure that we make the journey to a perfect smile as fun as possible!
