One of the new trends among young people is to get colored braces. While many of us want our braces NOT to be seen, our youth find it fun to color their teeth with colorful braces. If you ever seen a young child who broke their arm and they received a pink or purple cast instead of a plain while one like everyone else had, they are now making it stand out to be different or unique. This same trend is happening in the orthodontist world as well. It’s not too uncommon to find a 13 year old girl with a mouth full of pink braces or a design of pink and purple combinations. There are many options to choose from.

The popularity is on the rise for adults wearing braces as well. Many of us growing up didn’t have the money, the insurance or the knowledge to fix simple teeth straightening. More and more adults are opting for braces to straighten their teeth, however they usually go for the slightly more expensive rout of clear braces or the new Invisalign braces, which are actually mouth pieces and not braces at all. This trend is more of a cosmetic approach and helps the adult feel more confident throughout their work day and busy schedules.
