Color recommendations?

#1 Post by koffymasheen »

I'm getting power chains on for the first time coming soon at my 2nd adjustment. My first color choice was silver (I wanted something simple just so I could get used to the look of the braces), and now I have dark purple and dark blue. So... with my new chains coming on, and summer arriving, I decided I'm ready to try something (semi) bold and colorful. What do you all recommend for color choices? Pictures would be super helpful!

Thanks a lot, guys. As soon as I have a semi-decent camera I'll have to start taking pictures of my own braces/progress. :]

I have pink right now. Seemed summery. My daughter wants me to get yellow but I'm afraid to go that route because I'm thinking it might make my teeth look yellow.

I'm jealous that you get to pick what color your powerchains are :) I've never had a choice. The particular type that my ortho is using on me only comes in silver. I totally would have gone with pink if given the choice though.

I've had clear, screaming pink and blue. I hated the stained withing a few days. I like the pink but the blue is my favorite. There's pics of them in my story...just click on the WWW at the bottom of my post. They're on the last 3-4 pages, I think.
Keep smilin'! :)

Braced for 18 months: Damon 3mx all around with Damon 3's on "social six". Now is Essix retainers for 10 hours/night.

I think pink on top/yellow on the bottom would be very summery! Or if you have your adjustment before July 4th and you are American you could get blue on top and red on the bottom!
*DISCLAIMER* These are not my teeth!

Obviously powerchains would look a wee bit different but I figure this can give you an idea of what they would look like. I fancy the pink&yellow myself.

Most days I forget I even have braces.
