You should never feel embarrassed about wearing braces. It’s a rite of passage, and there is no need to feel self-conscious about straightening your teeth. Plus, we have ways of making it fun! So, don’t hide your smile. Own it!

Embrace Your Braces

When you appear confident and comfortable you are more attractive and appealing to other people. That is why you should just choose to embrace your braces. One way to engender that confidence is to have some fun with your braces. We have all colors of rubber bands to choose from. You can pick your favorite color, or mix and match. Change them out for every occasion and opportunity. How about the holidays? Red for Valentine’s Day, green for St. Patrick’s Day, orange for Halloween, etc. On Independence day you can wear red, white and blue! If you’re feeling particularly wild, neon colors and glow-in-the-dark bands are also available.

Photo Editing

After the pic has been taken, if you really hate it, you can use a photo-editing program to tweak what you don’t like. Simply zoom in tightly, pick the natural color of your teeth, and paint over the metal bits. Isn’t technology wonderful? You can even change your hair color and draw on a mustache if you like!

What you need to keep thinking about, is how awesome you’ll look once your dental work is complete. If you haven’t yet gotten your braces put in, be sure to discuss the options with us. There are some types of braces that are less visible than the traditional kind.
