  • Match your outfit: Take a look at what colors appear most in your closet and then pick a braces color that best complements your style! To play it safe you can pick a neutral color that closely matches your teeth, so it can go with any outfit or occasion.

  • Holiday Spirit!: Patrick’s Day, Fourth of July, Christmas, etc. Its fun to have your braces match upcoming holidays. Also, your braces color could bring a stylish look to any special occasions like weddings and graduations.

  • Your favorite sports team: Put your favorite team colors on display with your braces!

  • Colors that complement your eyes: Green bands would best complement brown eyes. Blue, pink, and lilac complement blue eyes; while purple, red, green, and orange intensify green eyes. 


Braces Colors and your Skin Tone

You can choose braces colors that fit your skin tone. If you have dark or olive skin, opt for bright jewel tones, like gold, turquoise, violet or navy. If you have fair skin, cool colors look best, so try silver, sky blue, light pink or lilac. Choosing colors based on your skin tone makes sure your braces always look good.
