LithpingLitha Thank you!

funshine you may. I really didn't think I'd get color but I'm glad she convinced me. I figured I waited long enough. I just didn't want to draw attention to my teeth anymore but I figure at this point everyone is used to my braces they don't care. Infact I went out with a bunch of friends and coworkers on friday night and not one person mentioned the color when I told someone about it they were like, "oh cool I didn't even notice!"

So I'm going to probably continue with color on the bottom. Although I hope I don't need powerchains from here until the end. I'd like to get red/green for Christmas and perhaps orange and black for halloween :lol: [/b]

How cute! There is nothing wrong with a little color now and then :) I don't get colors at all because I am in Damon's... without powerchains, as of yet, so I really miss them!!

Funshine: Maybe you will get to have color if you ever have to wear a powerchain :D
What exactly do powerchains do?

Thanks for the info! I probably will have powerchains some time or another. I don't have any gaps, but I have a rotated tooth. So I guess I may get to experiment with color, too. :lol:

Very cute! I got hot pink powerchains once:


But I wish my ortho had the brighter hot pink that you have! I also had pale pink and lavender that were similar. Oh how I miss picking out colors! :lol: :lol:
