How can parents help their children embrace their new braces? One way is to encourage them to have some fun and choose colored braces that fit their personal style. These ideas will help you and your child choose a set of braces that not only get the job done, but look great too.
With so many braces choices, there are a few tips and tricks that your child should consider when choosing the best colors for his or her braces:

However, these are just suggestions—you should empower your child to choose colors that he or she likes.
Certain colors may end up working against your child. For example, white and clear may seem like clean, classic options, but they can intensify the yellow in your child’s teeth and become discolored by coffee, soda, and tea.
Your child can use his or her braces to make a statement about something they are passionate about. Some ideas include:

The color of your child’s braces will mean nothing if they are not kept clean. Your child should take care of his or her teeth by practicing good oral habits:
