1) What are coloured braces for teeth?

Each of the braces gets a small rubber band around it called ligerings. It holds the wire in the bracket slot. This wire causes the teeth to straighten out.

These small rubber bands are available in different colours.

Braces (brackets) are the constant feature that will remain until the end of treatment. What changes are the wires and rubber bands.

We usually change your rubber bands every month. So you can get a whole new look every time you visit your orthodontist.

6) How to make your teeth look whiter with coloured braces?

Choose your brace's rubber band colour wisely.
Colours like dark pink, royal blue, black, dark green, lavender, etc.
Any dark colour makes your teeth look whiter.
Colours like white, yellow, transparent, baby pink, etc. make your teeth look yellower. Because they take up stains easily from the normal food you eat eg. Turmeric and become yellow soon. This gives your teeth a yellower effect.

Tip - When you reach the last wire, choose a safe colour like silver. Cause your wire might not get changed for months and so you can get stuck with the same colour for afew months.


7) Pain with coloured braces of teeth

You will feel pressure and not pain caused by the wire.

The wire causes tooth movement.

Braces tightening may cause your teeth to feel sore and sensitive to the touch. Solution- This can last up to 2-3 days.

Drink something cold, such as an iced drink or milkshake. It can help relieve the pressure on your teeth and ease the soreness. Post that there is no discomfort and you can get back to normal food.

If you feel the pain is unbearable then take a pain-relief medication as advised by your orthodontist. We usually prescribe Crocin in case of severe pain. Medicines like ibuprofen can slow down tooth movement. Remember to use medicines only if needed.

Remember, the pain is only temporary.

8) Food that you can eat with coloured braces for teeth

Stocking up on braces-friendly food before you even get your braces put on is most important.

Your teeth will feel a little sensitive when you first get your braces put on and after adjustments also. So opt for soft foods like rice, juices, idli, khichdi, soup, pudding, kheer, etc.

Avoid hard or sticky foods that may cause soreness or pain. Hard food also causes loosening of wires or the breaking of brackets. Avoid foods like popcorn, caramel, nuts, carrots, panipuri, thin-crust pizzas, papad, ice cubes, sticky sweets, etc.


One fun aspect of braces is getting to pick out the colours of bands each time you visit your orthodontist. For younger patients, having colourful braces may make them feel more confident.

But, adults may opt for clear or white bands. Either way, being able to personalize your experience can boost your confidence.
