Coquitlam Family Orthodontics offers a range of coloured elastics, so you can customize and personalize your braces at each adjustment appointment.
Braces involve quite a few parts, including the brackets, archway, metal bands (o-rings for back teeth) and rubber bands or elastics that go around the brackets.
While you may choose translucent cosmetic braces (and brackets), or Invisalign® to keep your dental treatment as invisible and low profile as possible, choosing to add colour to your braces will take you in the opposite direction.
Choosing coloured braces means you've embraced your new look, and instead of trying to hide it, you've decided to use it to express yourself!
The tiny rubber elastics (or bands) are what allow you to add colour to your smile! These elastics are changed during your adjustment appointments every 4 to 6 weeks, so you don’t even have to settle for just one color for the whole duration of treatment. You can switch things up at each visit!
You can even choose different colors of elastics for each tooth from a color wheel. The Happy Tooth provides an online color selector for braces so you can try your look out virtually first, print it out and bring it along to your next appointment.
Though there are no rules for adding colours to your braces, you can use the following suggestions to help you make up your mind about which colours to choose:
