Rubber Band Colors That Accentuate White Teeth

Let’s face it; traditional braces aren’t exactly subtle, and you might not be too thrilled about the metal brackets and wires essentially blocking your smile’s true magnificence, even if the treatment ultimately ends with beautiful results. But did you know that the rubber bands you wear can actually accentuate the color of your teeth and give your smile a nice glow? Here’s more about how the color of your rubber bands can effectively make your teeth look whiter while you have braces, along with which colors you should consider and some you should steer clear of.

Colors That Will Make Your Teeth Look Whiter

Your braces color can essentially be changed at each regular visit, so you don’t have to commit fully to just one color. You might even consider trying a few different ones out! However, if you’re hoping to make your teeth underneath your braces look as white as possible, you might consider darker colors, especially blue and purple. Darker shades like royal/navy blue, violet and indigo, and even black can make the color of your teeth appear whiter due to the contrast. Even so, beware of colors like dark green or brown that might look like food!

Colors To Avoid

Unfortunately, not every color will give your teeth a whiter appearance—in fact, some can actually make your teeth appear stained! Although it might seem counterintuitive, white braces can actually make your teeth seem darker in color, since the bands themselves can become discolored over time. Similarly, yellow or gold rubber bands might also make your teeth appear tarnished. However, if you already have more of a natural yellow tint to your teeth, you’re safe choosing clear or silver bands. Just keep in mind that these colors might also make your brackets appear slightly larger.

These days, braces are quite customizable with the amount of colors you can select for your rubber bands. However, if you’re hoping to make your teeth appear whiter during your braces journey, knowing what colors can accentuate them will go a long way towards giving your smile a bright edge while it’s being straightened.
