Important news flash: Braces are cool for school! Not only do they help make your smile healthy and straight, but they can also be a great way to express your style! Keep reading to learn how to enjoy your braces to the fullest as you head back to school this fall.

A Healthy Smile is a Great Smile

You probably already know that braces are cool because they help to straighten your teeth and make your smile healthier. When teeth are crooked, overlapping, or not in alignment with each other, it can make it extra difficult to clean all the surfaces of your teeth well, especially the tricky spots hidden between your teeth and along your gum line. And keeping your teeth and gums clean is important to help keep your teeth cavity-free and looking their brightest and best.

But did you know that braces are cool for school for a lot more reasons than just straightening your teeth? Braces can also be an awesome way to show off your incredible sense of style or make a statement about what’s important to you.

Accessorizing with Braces

Braces are more than just an orthodontic device, they can also be a fun and exciting fashion accessory when you get creative with your color choices for the bands that go on your braces at each appointment.

Do you like to support your school at games by wearing the school’s colors? Take it a step further and pick your school’s colors at your next braces appointment! Is there a cause you really believe in? Show your passion for the cause that’s close to your heart by choosing the colors that represent it. Or if there are holidays coming up, try out some festive seasonal colors like orange and black or red and green.

Your Amazing New Smile!

We know you’re excited to get your braces off and see your amazing new smile, but don’t forget you already have an amazing new smile to show off while you still have braces by choosing fun colors that represent the unique and creative person you are!

Braces are cool for school, so don’t be shy about your beautiful smile and awesome sense of style as you head back to school this fall!
