Braces Colors for Boys

Boys tend not to be too adventurous when it comes to their braces colors, this means they stick to the safe colors like blue, green and red. These seem pretty plain but they really are safe color choices for boys.

Braces Colors for Girls

Braces for girls are a lot easier and 10 times more has to be said they can pull many different colors off very well.

Some of the best colors for girls are pink, purple, red, yellow and baby blue.

Creative Coloring

Some people these days are starting to become a little creative when it comes to picking their colors, for instance using the colors of their favourite sports team or of their school/college.

This is a pretty cool idea that you should think about when deciding on your own colors, just don't chose a passing fashion as they come and go and your still stuck with them.

There are a lot of girls also going with the rainbow look which to be honest looks really cool.

Colors to Avoid

There are some colors that you really should stay way from and they really don't look good on anyone.

Clear braces tend to show bits of chewed food & dirt and they really aren't that easy to keep clean and let's be honest that is not a nice look on anyone now is it.

White braces should also be thought about twice, they tend to stain very easy and go a slight tinge of yellow like smokers teeth do, again this doesn't look good.

Which do you prefer?
