Today’s orthodontics offer more kinds of braces than ever before. One type that is very popular nowadays is colored braces. Braces are comprised of a few different components including brackets that are affixed to the teeth and metal wires that run between the brackets. In order to keep the metal wires in place, rubber bands are used to apply a small amount of pressure. Patients at Ricci Orthodontics can choose from a wide variety of different colors for their bands in order to personalize their braces.
Benefits of Colored Braces
One of the reasons that many patients avoid orthodontic treatment is because they would like to avoid bland and unattractive metal braces. Colored bands give patients the ability to create a fun and unique appearance.
Use Colors on Your Braces to Reveal Your Personality and Style
Braces are typically worn for a year or longer, and this makes them an excellent option for showing off your style. These bands come in dozens of different colors, so how are you going to choose the right color for your own look?
Braces with Colors
This process begins with Dr. Steven Ricci cementing brackets (braces) to the front of a patient’s teeth. Wires are attached to the brackets and will slowly move the teeth. Colorful bands can then be used to hold the wires in place. For some patients, a gate is used to hold the wires in place, but bands can still be attached as decorations.
Some of the most popular colors that you can choose from include gold, black, silver, gray, blue, green, red, orange, purple and pink. Your color options will change, so it is important that you ask about any new colors that we have received. Our team can also offer suggestions to help you find the absolute perfect bands for your own style.

You can change out your colored bands every few weeks to help you celebrate special events, holidays, school spirit, or even your favorite teams.
