One of the most common questions patients ask when getting braces is, What BEST BRACES COLOR will make my teeth look whiter? Ideally, you want to go with clear braces because they don’t cover your teeth and distract from their appearance. However, clear braces have their downsides. They can be more prone to staining from drinks and food than other types of braces, and the color of the brackets will still be visible on your teeth if they are in close proximity to your lips or tongue.
A lot of braces are made with a combination of blue and clear plastic which is great for aesthetics, but not so great when it comes to brightening teeth. The secret behind getting your teeth whiter with braces is to take good care of them. Here are some tips on how to maintain your white smile: Brush as soon as you get out of bed (or after a few minutes) and then every couple hours afterward. Floss daily and make sure that you’re using toothpaste designed for braces. This can make a world of difference in keeping your teeth white and plaque-free. Some things aren’t under your control, such as genetics, but there’s no reason why you shouldn’t have a beautiful smile.
If you have clear or white braces, or are using a clear retainer after getting your braces off, choose a pink-colored toothpaste to use on your teeth. The cool shades of pink will help your teeth look whiter without negatively affecting the color of your braces or retainer. And it’s gentle on gums. If you can find toothpaste made for teens with braces, that might be best because most adult products are too abrasive for sensitive teeth and gums that come with wearing braces. The nice thing about minty-flavored toothpaste is it not only cleans but helps freshen breath as well—so whitening and freshness in one. Using a soft toothbrush (ideally just once a day) will also help you avoid scraping and rubbing against your teeth, which could damage them. But if you feel like you really need to brush multiple times per day while wearing braces, consider investing in an electric toothbrush; they’re easier on both teeth and gums than traditional brushes. Again, how often you brush depends on what else is going on with your mouth at any given time; when undergoing orthodontic treatment we recommend sticking to no more than twice per day so your teeth and gums don’t get sore from overuse.
Choosing a color of braces is an important decision as it can either distract or complement your natural smile. There are many to choose from, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. One popular shade is green, which is thought to help teeth appear whiter by minimizing surface stains while it’s in place. However, green (like any other color) will have no whitening effect on metal fillings that have become worn down over time. To make your choice of braces color easier, discuss it with your orthodontist before you receive treatment so you know exactly what to expect during treatment. With a little research and an honest discussion about what you want out of your final smile, there’s no reason why choosing braces should be painful! So whatever color catches your eye, make sure you look good when you finally remove them after your treatment period has ended.
Black & Clear Polka Dots
Black-and-clear polka dots are a popular treatment for braces. If you want your teeth to look whiter but don’t want people to notice that you’re wearing braces, these might be perfect for you. Black-and-clear polka dots will make your teeth appear lighter and brighter without distracting attention from other features on your face. However, if you opt for black-and-clear polka dots, it’s still important to floss and brush regularly between appointments with your orthodontist—that way, they can catch any problem areas before they become visible. This minor precaution may keep you looking professional through your whole time in braces. Of course, black-and-clear polka dots aren’t right for everyone. They work best with dark hair and fair skin tones; anyone who wears glasses or has lighter skin tone is probably better off going another route. Most patients wear them in their first year of braces and then switch over to something else. You may also get them mixed up with clear brackets at first glance, which could lead to embarrassing situations when you try to talk about your dental care at work or out in public!
White & Clear Stripes
Clear plastic brackets are going to be your best bet if you want to whiten your teeth. In fact, they may be a better choice even if you have regular metal braces – white-colored brackets can make your teeth appear dingy or yellow in comparison. When it comes to clear vs white, don’t choose based on appearances; pick based on how much maintenance you want to put into keeping them clean and free of plaque and stains.
