When it comes to your smile, people notice details about your teeth and gums like how straight they are or if you have any crowding in the back. But do you know what color braces you should get? If not, it’s probably because people don’t usually think about the color of their braces or that there’s even an option to choose from! You’d be surprised at how many options are available to customize your braces, which can also help to boost your self-confidence about your appearance as well. Keep reading this article for more information on pink and blue braces!
Types of Colorful Braces
It’s not a question of whether to get braces; it’s how to get them. There are multiple options, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. You should know what they are before you make a decision so that you can decide which one will work best for your specific needs. The two most common options are pink braces, which used to be known as clear braces, and blue braces. Both types are comprised of metal wires bonded with composite resin in order to move teeth into better alignment. In some cases, brackets may also be used in order to connect wires together or in order to attach appliances such as retainers or night guards. Here is more information on pink and blue braces:
When Can I Get them
Pink and blue braces aren’t allowed until your teeth are fully developed; typically, that means you can get them when you’re between 17-18 years old. However, it really varies from patient to patient. If you wear sports mouth guards or bruxism appliances (used to prevent tooth grinding) consistently, your orthodontist may allow it even earlier. Typically, though, they wait until all of your permanent teeth have erupted. Pink and blue braces aren’t just for girls! In fact, we fit boys with pink brackets all of the time!
It is important to remember that pink isn’t always feminine—it is simply a color on its own. Some people love it because they think it looks fun or sporty while others like it because they want something different than their peers. And as long as you’re happy with what you choose then who cares what anyone else thinks? No matter which color you choose, be sure to take care of them by brushing twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste and flossing once a day so that they last as long as possible!
Who Gets Them
In 1990, only 6% of orthodontic patients were women. Today, that number has grown to 40%, with male braces sales remaining steady at 30%. This trend is expected to continue. While baby boomers still make up a substantial portion of braces wearers in their fifties and sixties, studies show that 2 out of 3 current orthodontic patients are under age 19. Since children today spend more time on computers than they do outdoors, jaw problems will likely increase over time. More than anything else, that means more children in need of specialized care. With pink or blue braces (or both!), kids can feel good while they wait out treatment! As long as your child’s teeth aren’t overly sensitive, there’s no reason not to have fun with it. Who knows? You might even end up with an awesome Instagram feed!
That’s all for now – thanks for reading!
Pros And Cons
Pink braces are adorable! However, some people feel that pink is only for girls, so if you want to show your masculinity, choose blue. Also, both colors of braces are functional; it really just depends on your own personal preference. And even if you do end up getting pink or blue braces, you can always change them out for a different color later on! Braces aren’t all bad—they keep your teeth straight, but they can also be fun and fashionable.
So don’t fret—you might be surprised to find that having a set of straight teeth is actually pretty awesome! You may need to wear braces for two years or more, but in exchange you’ll have a smile that will last a lifetime. It’s definitely worth it! The choice is yours: get pink braces if you like being girly, or get blue ones if you prefer being manly. Just remember: no matter what color you choose, there are pros and cons to each one!
How Long Do They Last
Veneers tend to last longer than braces. The average life span of a veneer is 5-10 years, while traditional braces can start to show signs of wear after 4-6 years. If you’re in good oral health habits, your veneers can last even longer. But when they do need to be replaced, you’ll have to make a choice: braces or Invisalign? There are many factors that will help you decide whether or not an aligner is right for you at that time—but sometimes it’s just nice knowing both options are there!

Cost to Maintain Them
It is recommended that if you have metal braces you need to have them cleaned twice a year by your orthodontist. On average, a cleaning costs $150. With ceramic braces, your orthodontist will also clean them at least twice per year. This is also $150 on average for each cleaning session. Pink or blue braces can be maintained just like metal or ceramic with cleanings every 6-12 months. The cost of one cleaning session is around $100, so 2 cleanings a year will cost you an extra $200 per year than what it would if you had metal or ceramic braces. This brings your total cost of having pink or blue braces to around $400 a year.
This total cost does not include other fees such as: retainer fee ($75), headgear ($300-$500), extractions ($125-$250), aligners (starting at $1,000) or expansion (usually only needed for people who want their teeth moved back more quickly). You may find these items are not covered by insurance either. Most insurance companies do not cover clear aligners because they are considered cosmetic treatment and not medically necessary, even though many people wear them after they finish treatment to keep their teeth straight. So depending on how long you wear your braces, some things could end up costing over $1,000 out of pocket!
