Braces for a Bright Smile

Braces for a Bright Smile

The dentist has just stated that you have to wear braces for the next 18 months or so. You should not feel down because after all, you will achieve that Hollywood smile you have always dreamt of. What next? Who said you cannot rock in your braces? Whoever did lied because with braces you can still be a fashionista and look fabulous in them. One of the many parts that braces have, the elastic bands, are often changed after 4 to 6 weeks and these bands allow you to play around with the different colors. What color should you go for?

Darker skin

While some colors complement a certain complexion, others don’t. So if you are darker in complexion colors such as turquoise, green, violet, dark blue, gold, orange and pink are good options to explore. Depending on how adventurous you are, you can pick any of those colors and match with your outfit or favorite team color. Add glamour to your braces!

Lighter skin

If you are lighter you may explore colors like light red, dark blue, darker shades of purple, bronze and light blue. Since you are visiting your dentist monthly, you may alternate colors and wow your friends by showing them that having braces could be this fun. When you are unsure on what color to go for, you may ask your orthodontist for a hand in picking the right color.

However…

In as much as there are very many colors in your orthodontist’s’ office and you want to go for your favorite one, take caution about choosing some colors. Lighter colors usually make the teeth yellow while darker ones give an illusion of whiter teeth.

Yellow bands in particular exaggerate the appearance of yellow teeth while white may seem to be a safer color, it is not a good choice since it stains easily and can also make your teeth look more yellow. Colors such as black and green are not good candidates likewise as they mimic rotting and stuck food respectively.

"I've been going to Dr. Do for almost 10 years, and he's the best dentist that I've ever had. In fact, I drive 45 minutes each way to receive care from him at Madison Square. He and his staff are caring, gentle, and friendly. He takes great care of his patients and tries to do everything as painlessly as possible. He stays up to date with new techniques and equipment. I also appreciate that he has Saturday appointments available. I trust him and his staff completely!"

"Dr. Do is amazing after having many dentist I have found Dr Do to be the most professional and honest. Over two years now and no cavity. I have never felt pushed to buy anything here. Even when I asked about teeth bleaching he did not push me at all to make a purchase. My wife goes here too and has needed dental work she got a second opinion which confirmed Dr Do assessment. Couldn't ask for more."

"Hands down the best dental experience we have ever had. The entire staff is incredible, they are amiable and accommodating. I received a floral arrangement from Madison Square Dentistry after losing my grandmother (seriously what other dentist does that) they have been flexible with the extensive dental work my husband needed and treat us like family. Highly, highly recommend this organization."
