When you pick out your outfit in the morning, what are you most drawn to? Warmer tones? Deep colors? Pastel shades? Crazy patterns? Whatever the case may be, what you wear is an expression of who you are – the colored rubber bands on your braces do the same thing! Keep reading to learn about the different color options and what they represent.


Red is a vibrant, intense, powerful color. As a result, this shade is associated with forward-thinking, passion, and challenge-driven individuals. Since it also represents the heart, selecting this color indicates that you are both caring and loving.


Shades of blue are associated with calmness, like a peaceful summer sky or beautiful ocean waves. So, if you’d like to exude tranquility, this is a great choice! Plus, it’s a relatively neutral color, ensuring it won’t clash with any of your outfits.


Green is most often seen in nature, so it’s a popular color in the spring and summer! Since it’s also associated with recycling and Saint Patrick’s Day, it’s a great choice if you are particularly passionate about the cause or holiday.


This vibrant color can represent everything from spring flowers to fall leaves, making it a perfect fit year-round. The brighter shades of orange are associated with words like daring, wild, and fun, while more muted tones represent balance and energy. So, you can change up the tone based on your mood!


Associated with mystery, this color is best suited for a creative. Someone who thinks outside of the box and marches to the beat of their own drum. At one time, it was a color reserved for royalty, so it can also represent classiness!


Why choose one color when you can have them all? Having every color of the rainbow represented on your braces shows off your fun personality. Plus, since most patients just choose one color, it’ll be sure to set you apart from the rest!

Alternating Colors

Alternating between two colors, like red and green for Christmas or black and orange for Halloween, is ideal for people who have a lot of holiday spirit. For Valentine’s Day, you can alternate between red and pink. For the 4th of July, you can choose a red, white, and blue pattern – the opportunities are endless!
